We’ve refunded all bets on Tyson Fury to win Sports Personality of the Year, after the boxer was controversially omitted from the shortlist.
Despite his inspiring comeback story – and stunning rise from the canvas in the final round of his contested draw against Deontay Wilder – Fury was left off the final shortlist, with cyclist Geraint Thomas eventually taking home the crown.
Our Paddy Power said: “If you were to take the award literally, Tyson is the biggest personality in sport. He’s also one of the biggest people in sport full-stop.
“His return to the ring was sensational and inspiring, and that was reflected in the huge backing he got in our betting market – for that reason, we’ve decided to refund all bets on him winning as a justice refund.”
