Jockey AP McCoy has been crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
The 36-year-old bookmakers’ favourite finally won the Grand National this year on Don’t Push It.
Holding the famous Personality of the Year trophy, he said: “This is an unbelievable feeling to be standing in front of so many amazing sports people.”
The runner-up was darts player Phil Taylor, and athlete Jessica Ennis claimed third place.
McCoy, from Northern Ireland, has been champion jockey a record 15 times in a row and has ridden more than 3,000 winners.
His National win this year was the 15th time of trying.
He said to a packed house at the LG Arena in Birmingham: “To win this award is very surreal and obviously it could not have been achieved without the help of so many people.
“I have so many people to thank. I work in a wonderful sport, they probably spent most of the night voting for me.”
He thanked his trainer Jonjo O’Neill, his wife and his family.
Speaking of his daughter, he said: “I know she’ll be watching at home and I just want to say how amazing she is.”
