No-one can beat Murray to the BBC award

Worcester News: No-one can beat Murray to the BBC award No-one can beat Murray to the BBC award

THERE are just 10 days to go until Andy Murray is unveiled as BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

Where did you get that inside information?, I hear you cry. Well, call it a hunch but I reckon the Scot has got this one in the bag.

It’s a one-horse race and has been ever since the 26-year-old finally ended the 77-year wait for a British Wimbledon men’s singles champion in July.

Just take a look at the odds.

Murray is 1-19 on, while double Olympic and World gold medallist Mo Farah is second favourite at 33-1.

Chris Froome won the Tour de France and is priced at 100-1. That tells you all you need to know.

It’s not Murray’s fault he’s the winner elect and the award will be thoroughly deserved, honouring an achievement few thought they would ever see.

What annoys me is the BBC carrying on with the charade that there is anybody else in the running.

It’s almost an insult to the other nine nominees. They know they can’t win it.

It would save everybody a lot of time if he was just given the award now rather than dragging the inevitable out over a two-hour show in Leeds on Sunday week.

Then we could get on with the event’s main purpose, which is to celebrate the sporting year.

As it says in the title it is 'personality' of the year .
I think that Murray has had a pretty good 'charisma bypass' operation and is showing no signs of regression into any charisma reoccurring .
The personality contest is okay if taken with a pinch of salt that it should be accompanied with .
It is not relevant just a good opportunity to big up the sportsmen and a load of 'hasbeens' . I just hope that Henman is not involved as I dont think that I could stay awake having to endure both of them !
