OUTGOING Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been installed as the front-runner to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2013.
Bookmaker William Hill yesterday had Sir Alex as the 6/4 favourite for the award following the news that he is retiring after 27 years in charge at the Premiership club.
Other famous names in contention for the prize include tennis ace Andy Murray (2/1), cyclist Chris Froome (7/1) and cricketer Alastair Cook (8/1).
This was from the Yorkshire Evening post in May.
