So pleased for Mo Farah,fully deserved.

Anthony Joshua was 1/9 today to win so a big shock for him not to even make the top 3. The athletics being watched by millions on BBC1 and the boxing being hidden away on Pay Per View has an affect on votes.

Excellent news. He has been unlucky not to win it before when he has been up against incredible opposition. Unfortunately, some people on social media seem unable to celebrate the fact that he has been able to achieve so much as a result of being allowed to come to the UK as a refugee.

The people on social media who are moaning about Farah winning must be forgetting Greg Rusedski who only took British nationality two years before he won it in 1997.

I'm glad Mo has finally been recognized. Also great to see Jonathan Rea come second with Jonnie Peacock third, I think that is only the second time a Paralympican has made the Top3.

Quite emotional to watch when Bradley Lowery won the Helen Rollaston Award. Very much missed, the brave smiling boy.

I wouldn't have said this was Farah's year for it, so that was rather surprising but I'm very glad he's finally been honoured with it as it's been overdue, and fitting in his last year of competition. Stunned at Antony Joshua being that low (17 votes off 3rd eek :x), he was the sports name I'd seen around the most this year, I guess the sport being a bit niche didn't help?

lolz at that BBC error as well, someone's getting fired tonight~

Delighted for Mo, if only I knew his odds were so low I would have placed my first ever bet! It couldn't have been anyone else for me from that list, his achievements in the past 5 years really outshine every other British sports star of recent times and he'll be missed from the track events in the coming years.

Good for Mo. I feel bad for Lewis though, his achievements this year - hitting so many milestones and the strength he showed to comeback and win the title - deserve more recognition. I guess if he wasn't in the car considered to be the best he may have earned more respect.

He is also too divisive now to ever win it again, you either love or hate him, I love him so of course I voted him but I didn't expect him to get anywhere near the top 3 this year.

Similar story with Chris Froome, his cycling achievements are incredible but a large proportion of the public haven't taken to him, plus he had that rather untimely drug scandal story just before the ceremony which won't have helped.

I hate him - wraps a British flag round him and yet lives in Switzerland!
