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!

Addendum:
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.
