Andy Murray took home top honors winning BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year for 2016 for a third time.

“I’d like to thank everyone who voted,” Murray said in a video message. “I really appreciate your support. And I’d like to thank my team – they make a lot of sacrifices for me; they’re away form their family at times of the year like this.”

Murray joked wife Kim didn’t vote for him. Or was it a joke?

Murray, who also won the award in 2013 and 2015, received 247,419 votes with triathlete Alistair Brownlee second and show jumper Nick Skelton third.

Murray is currently training in Miami preparing for the 2017 season. He took the award from boxer Lennox Lewis.

“I’m sure Novak will be wanting to get back to the top spot,” Murray added. “But it’s taken me so long to get here that I want to stay there as long as I can, and that’s why I’m over here now.

“I’m working on my game and trying to get myself in shape so I can start 2017 as best as possible.”

Afternoon honey! :)Hope your day goes well.
Winter solstice day has arrived. Hooray!
Andy was so funny about Judy’s Christmas presents- along the lines of a few clementines and a bit of chocolate, as usual…;)

Morning M!yay..My Princess just woke up!Hey..i read a storm called Barbara is about to hit Scotland in a couple of days..Are Wales going to get affected as well?

Margot Says:

AML Looks as if it’s mainly Scotland, so Kath better take cover, but these darn storms can change direction in half a mo!

J-Kath Says:

Margot: Storm Barbara supposed to be further north than my area….hopefully I’ll escape her…and at least my journey isn’t along the coast.

AndyMira Says:

J-Kath Says:


I think U mis-read me. I hope it wasn’t the French kiss for Rafa that got you!!!

I think Dear Barbara is visiting most of the UK come Xmas Eve. And No, I decided to spend Christmas on my own. I’ve also had invites from neighbours which I have refused. But many thanks for your good wishes…..please enjoy yourself with your family…even if it is a so-called Christian Festival…

AndyMira Says:

JK…thanks for your wishes as well…So-called Christian festival to us that means..hanging out in front of the TV whole day and watch a movie about Christmas that involves snow,lots of food and family gathering!We’re very fascinated to see the whiteness of snow…

Hey, do you know that we can make some sort of drink/dessert out of snow?You put a handful of clean snow in a bowl and spread on top with some kind of syrup,chocolate,nuts,tinned corn,strawberry,cream or sweetened milk and voila!It’s heaven when eat it in the summer…
