Britain's most successful track athlete Mo Farah was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year on Sunday night ahead of more fancied contenders such as Anthony Joshua and Lewis Hamilton.

Farah earned 83,524 votes - 2,957 more than Northern Irishman Rea, who became the first rider to win three consecutive World Superbike titles, while double Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock came third.

The three-time world heptathlon champion, and gold medallist at the London Olympics in 2012, said she was "incredibly proud" of her career and thanked her coach Toni Minichiello, support staff, family and husband Andy. "You look at this year and Jonnie Peacock, Anthony Joshua, Lewis Hamilton, it's been incredible".

Farah won his third successive world 10,000m gold medal in London in August, despite nearly falling twice late in the race.

Ennis-Hill won Olympic gold at London 2012 and followed up with a silver at Rio 2016.
