Congratulations to Chris Hoy

I thought Chris was a racing certainty to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award, held last night in Liverpool's Echo Arena. In the event, he did win, although he was a rank outsider with the bookies, in the week running up to the event, I've read since.

Anyway, a thoroughly deserved victory, and hats off to you, Chris. Next stop, the New Year's Honours list!

Further congratulations are due to Chris: I've just read in today's Independent that Chris has received a knighthood - the first athlete to receive the honour whilst still competing, and he'll go to the London Games as Sir Chris Hoy.

Hi Matt!
Just came to say this Award is great.
Maybe it needs a second round.
