Sir Chris Hoy receives BBC Sports Personality Lifetime Achievement Award

Sir Chris says: “It’s a huge honour to be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. I never thought I’d see my name alongside the likes of Sir Steve Redgrave, David Beckham, Seve Ballesteros and others who’ve received this incredible honour and it makes it even more special to be receiving the award in Scotland.”

Barbara Slater, Director, BBC Sport, says: “As a former BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner, Sir Chris Hoy has been a tremendous ambassador for sport and, although he has retired from cycling, continues to be an inspiration to young athletes. It’s fantastic that he is, not only being recognised for his exceptional achievements, but also that it is being awarded to him in his home country, Scotland.”
