Ben Stokes’ remarkable year, which included a stunning World Cup-winning performance and arguably the greatest ever Test innings at Emerald Headingley, has culminated in the all-rounder being voted ‘Sports Personality of the Year.’

The England all-rounder was crowned after topping a public poll conducted during the BBC’s flagship annual sports review.

Stokes is only the fifth cricketer to win the prestigious award and the first since Andrew Flintoff was recognised for his Ashes exploits in 2005.

Stokes said: “Congratulations to all of the nominees. What you have achieved as individuals and what you’ve done for your sports is sensational.
