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.
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.
