Posted by

Emma Raducanu, a teen US Open champion, has been named BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2021.

Raducanu’s astonishing victory at Flushing Meadows ended Britain’s 44-year wait for a women’s Grand Slam singles champion.

Her Cinderella victory came after a run to the fourth round of Wimbledon in July, her first Grand Slam main draw appearance.

Diver Tom Daley came in second and swimmer Adam Peaty came in third in a public vote.

The major prize was also shortlisted for Manchester City and England player Raheem Sterling, boxer Tyson Fury, and Great Britain’s most successful paralympian Sarah Storey.

“It’s such an honour just to be among these nominees. Congrats to you and all your achievements,” Raducanu said.
