Murray wins BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2013

By for MurraysWorld.com on
Andy Murray was awarded the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award today to round off the most memorable year of his career to date.


The Scot, who accepted the award from Martina Navratilova over video-link, made history in July when he ended Britain's 77 year for a British male singles champion at Wimbledon. In a year hampered by injury he was also victorious in Miami and at Queens, as well as making the Australian Open final and leading Britain back into the World Group in the Davis Cup.

Welsh rugby starlet Leigh Halfpenny and horseracing legend A.P. McCoy came 2nd and 3rd respectively.

The Brit will now return to training in Miami ahead of his prospective comeback in Doha in two weeks time.

I haven't felt so emotional or so proud of Andy since that unforgettable day at SW19.  Winning this trophy clearly meant a great deal to him - not just the trophy itself but, I'm sure, finally the appreciation and recognition by the British public of what he has achieved and what he has gone through to attain these achievements.

Well done, Andy! Totally merited.

I understand that Andy polled more than 50% of the entire votes cast. Almost unheard of.

Roll on 2014! It should be a good year for Andy on the assumption that he has fully recovered from his operation and no lagging doubts remain.

Perhaps SPOTY 2014?
