SPOTY: Ben Stokes crowned the winner for 2019

England cricketer Ben Stokes has been voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2019.

After a man of the match performance as England won the World Cup for the first time, the dramatic super over victory against New Zealand at Lord’s was the icing on the cake for the 28 year old.

Stokes also hit an unbeaten 135 in the one-wicket third Ashes Test triumph against Australia at Headingley.

In a year of highs and lows for Stokes, he saw off both Lewis Hamilton and Dina Asher-Smith to be crowned SPOTY in the public vote.
