Andy Murray has won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award for the second time in three years.

28 year old Andy won 361,446 of the 1,009,498 votes cast – that’s 35%.

A two-time Grand Slam winner, this year Andy reached the final of the Australian Open and the semi-finals of both Wimbledon and the French Open.

He finished the year, second in the world rankings and won all 11 of his Davis Cup matches, including three in the final against Belgium.

He was also named Young Sports Personality of the Year in 2004.

Andy Murray was presented the award by Irish boxing legend Barry McGuigan, in front of 7,500 people at the SSE Arena.

“Thank you very much. I didn’t expect this,” Murray said.
