The cream of the athletic crop are set to descend on MediaCity in Salford for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.

England and Wales might have failed to bring home the World Cup trophy but the Brits can look back on 2022 as a decent year for their sporting prospects with new stars emerging alongside some established names.


The key thing to remember is that the title of Sports Personality of the Year is not be taken literally. Twitter is bound to be a hellscape of yer da’s moaning that the winner has no character… just block and ignore.
