Teenage tennis sensation Andrew Murray has been crowned this year's top sports personality in Scotland.

The Wimbledon quarter-finalist won the title of BBC Scotland's Sports Personality of the Year 2005 after gaining 55% of the public vote.

A stunned Murray was presented with the award in a surprise visit from the BBC as he promoted a charitable initiative at the Royal Bank of Scotland's new Edinburgh headquarters.

Murray said:
I actually had no idea. It's great. I wasn't expecting something like that

Reflecting on the past year, Murray said:
Since Wimbledon it's been non-stop. I played really well and I couldn't have hoped for anything more. I played against Roger Federer, the best player in the world.

Asked what lay in store for him at Christmas, the young player joked:
Mum normally buys clothes but she's got really bad taste.

His mother Judy had been in on the secret and knew he would get the award.

Congratulations Andy!  Very modest in his acceptance of the award.  Thoroughly deserved in my mind!
