Following an incredible second half to 2018, Novak Djokovic picked up his fourth Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award Monday in Monaco.
“A Laureus Award is what every athlete wants to win, and this one is a huge honour for me,” Djokovic said. “Being among so many sporting greats here tonight, and hearing about the inspirational work Laureus is doing around the world, gives this Award a special meaning for me.
“Last year was an incredible season for me, returning from injury to win Wimbledon and the US Open is something I’ll remember forever. I am delighted and I would like to thank the Laureus Academy for their support.”
Djokovic beat out Kylian Mbappe, Eliud Kipchoge and LeBron James for the top honor.
Naomi Osaka won the Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year Award.
