Lewis Hamilton Wins 2020 Sports Personality of the Year ~ By Randev Jayasinha

Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has once again been voted BBC Sports Personality for the year 2020.

Hamilton most recently equaled all-time Formula 1 great Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world titles and surpassed the previous win record of 91 wins in the sport.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was awarded the runners up position while jockey Hollie Doyle was second runner up.

In a heartfelt acceptance speech, Hamilton thanked everyone who voted for him and added that he was not expecting to win given that there were so many great nominees including the likes of boxer Tyson Fury, England cricketer Stuart Broad and snooker great Ronnie O’Sullivan.

“I want to say Merry Christmas to everyone – it’s been such an unusual year and I want to mention all the front-line workers and all the children round the world, I want you to try and stay positive through this difficult time, I’m sending you all positivity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Also, at the 2020 Sports Personality of the Year Awards, Liverpool FC won team of the year while their coach Jurgen Klopp was voted coach of the year.
