BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2020: Who will ‘clinch prize’ if ceremony goes ahead?



It’s looking more and more likely that there won’t be a Sports Personality of the Year contest for 2020, but it hasn’t stopped bookmakers offering odds for several British stars to clinch the honour.

All sporting action has been postponed for the foreseeable future in a bid to prevent further outbreak of the coronavirus. Covid-19 has affected competitions such as the English Premier League, the 2020 Olympics and the Formula 1 season among countless others.

And the suspension of sport across the world means Britain’s stars have been forced to take a break from performing.

Despite the lack of action, there are still many famous faces who could go on to have a successful year if and when sport is brought back.

And Tyson Fury is one athlete who has already had huge success in 2020. The 31-year-old ended Deontay Wilder’s five year reign as WBC heavyweight in their rematch in February.

Fury produced a stunning performance to defeat the American in Las Vegas, and is strong favourite at evens to win the 2020 SPOTY award.

Also in contention is Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and boxer Anthony Joshua at 6/1 and 12/1 respectively.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is available at 16/1.

The England international has been central to the club’s success this season. Henderson has been a mainstay in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield, and is part of the squad that is currently sitting top of the Premier League table.

Sprinter Dina Asher-Smith and tennis star Andy Murray are both currently 18/1. And snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan and cyclist Laura Kenny are both available at 20/1.

The trio of Rory McIlroy, Jason Kenny and Laura Muir are currently 25/1. 

And there are a whole host of stars available at 33/1, including Raheem Sterling and Adam Peaty. Also on the list are Johanna Konta, Max Whitlock, Harry Kane and Chris Froome.

It’s currently 40/1 for Kyle Edmund, Geraint Thomas and Katrina Johnson-Thompson.

England cricketer Ben Stokes picked up the main prize last time out. The all-rounder won the 2019 prize after a stellar season on the field.

Stokes was man of the match as England won their first ever World Cup last summer. The 28-year-old starred in the thrilling super over victory over New Zealand at Lord’s.

He also hit an unbeaten 135 in the nation’s third Ashes Test win against Australia at Headingley.

Stokes finished ahead of Hamilton and Asher-Smith in the final standings. The F1 driver claimed second, with the sprinter claiming third.
