on this overall complex plan we wait to see, but it could not have got

:00:00.:00:00.

off to a worse start in some ways. Now live to Birmingham where Nick

:00:00.:00:10.

Owen and Denise Lewis are looking at all the preparations and arrivals

:00:11.:00:13.

for this year's Sports Personality of the Year show. And who wins is

:00:14.:00:21.

down to you. You can cast your vote online. Numbers are shown on your TV

:00:22.:00:29.

screen. You can register to vote on the BBC Sports Personality of the

:00:30.:00:32.

Year website. It really is that simple. We are expecting over 1000

:00:33.:00:36.

people to walk down this red carpet, but let's seafood neck was speaking

:00:37.:00:45.

to. -- see who make a speaking tour. I have been joined by someone who

:00:46.:00:50.

has won 26 Olympic golds, the swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife,

:00:51.:00:57.

Nicole. Lovely to see you both. For me, my whole career started with a

:00:58.:01:01.

golden dream of being an Olympian and having the chance to win one.

:01:02.:01:06.

When I think back to the last five Olympics, and the thought of 28

:01:07.:01:11.

Olympic medals, 23 of them go, it is hard to wrap my head around. For me

:01:12.:01:19.

I have caught up to 2008, and that is where I am in my career about

:01:20.:01:22.

understanding of the thing that has happened and finally getting the

:01:23.:01:25.

chance to sit down and go back to the members I have before. The next

:01:26.:01:29.

one around will be the 2012 games that were here in London, so I'm

:01:30.:01:32.

looking forward to those and having the chance to be back here is

:01:33.:01:36.

definitely exciting. Ahead I presume you are aware it is one of the big

:01:37.:01:39.

nights in the British sporting calendar. Yes, I have some good

:01:40.:01:46.

friends who I competed against here, and I'm looking forward to seeing

:01:47.:01:49.

all the other athletes. It is always fun when you get athlete to get to

:01:50.:01:54.

dress up. Normally we are in our aspect of attire, whether it is a

:01:55.:01:57.

swimsuit for a track and field uniform, whatever it might be. It is

:01:58.:02:00.

always nice being able to get dressed up and come together to

:02:01.:02:05.

celebrate the year in sports. Inevitably people will say when will

:02:06.:02:08.

you give up and give other people a chance? No more. I said that four

:02:09.:02:15.

years ago but for me now just being where I am in my life and where we

:02:16.:02:19.

are in our lives, I don't have anything someone to do. I was able

:02:20.:02:23.

to finish a great summer by winning five more gold medals and one more

:02:24.:02:28.

silver. To be able to come up with other thing I had gone through,

:02:29.:02:32.

there is no better way to finish. Lovely to meet you both. Have a

:02:33.:02:36.

great evening. Really enjoy yourself, congratulations, thanks to

:02:37.:02:41.

you and to Nick Browne. Thank you, happy holidays and stop I am with

:02:42.:02:46.

triple gold medallist Sophie Christiansen. It is so fabulous to

:02:47.:02:50.

see you and many congratulations for what has been a fantastic year

:02:51.:02:55.

again. How does it feel to be here tonight? Just amazing. It hasn't

:02:56.:03:02.

really sunk in to be up here with so many amazing athletes. And still so

:03:03.:03:08.

many hundreds more that could have been nominated. So it is a massive

:03:09.:03:18.

privilege for me and to be able to showcase a minority sport, it is

:03:19.:03:23.

great. I know you are very passionate about that and Para-sport

:03:24.:03:28.

in general, but you are such a trailblazer, the most unbeaten since

:03:29.:03:36.

2012. It has really been incredible. Yes, it is hard to stay at the top

:03:37.:03:41.

but it is about thinking about those little things to always improve, and

:03:42.:03:49.

not get impatient. You are one of the very few athletes still working

:03:50.:03:53.

and competing at the highest level. How do you do it? It is my fault

:03:54.:04:03.

that I have done a really expensive sport, so I have to work. But for me

:04:04.:04:16.

it is about keeping my brain so active, so when I go to work I

:04:17.:04:20.

completely forget that I have two win a gold medal this year, and I am

:04:21.:04:25.

just normal Sophie is in the pet department. So it really helps me go

:04:26.:04:31.

back to my training. It has been fabulous to see you tonight, you are

:04:32.:04:40.

looking splendid, enjoyable evening. Thank you.

:04:41.:04:42.

Viewers from the BBC News Channel have just joined us, hello. We are

:04:43.:04:47.

in the red carpet near Birmingham ahead of the BBC Sports Personality

:04:48.:04:50.

of the Year awards, and I just want you, there may well be lots of

:04:51.:04:53.

flashing images because there was a lot going on with the paparazzi and

:04:54.:04:59.

seven. A fantastic feeling, Kadeena Cox. You won medals in two sports.

:05:00.:05:04.

Vila to something I have worked towards. It has been amazing. More

:05:05.:05:14.

mentally than anything it was tough. To stay grounded and perform a

:05:15.:05:16.

second time and then do the same thing a couple of days later. Just

:05:17.:05:21.

being able to focus was hard but it was the most enjoyable experience I

:05:22.:05:25.

ever had. When it came to an end, did you collapse in a heap? You get

:05:26.:05:29.

to the end of it and then you realise it is over. Your body does

:05:30.:05:35.

kind of go flat and you get really ill. I got quite ball after the

:05:36.:05:39.

games but it has been really exciting and busy since then so I

:05:40.:05:45.

have just been enjoying myself. You were diagnosed with multiple

:05:46.:05:47.

sclerosis just two years ago, it must've been a massive rethink from?

:05:48.:05:54.

Yes. It has changed my life than I have disabilities every day now.

:05:55.:05:58.

Being a disabled person has its challenges but at the same time it

:05:59.:06:02.

gave me amazing opportunities within Para-sport and in general. I guess I

:06:03.:06:08.

can't complain really. How I'm feeling with this atmosphere? I am

:06:09.:06:14.

early really nervous. It has been fun. We wish you well, thanks for

:06:15.:06:18.

talking to us, good luck and have a great evening. Kadeena Cox, thank

:06:19.:06:25.

you. I am with another of the 16 contenders. Adam Peaty, no less.

:06:26.:06:31.

This is great to see you, no stranger to the red carpet. Each

:06:32.:06:38.

year I keep coming back, hoping to win. It is great to be here and to

:06:39.:06:42.

show it with the rest of the country and hopefully give back as much as

:06:43.:06:47.

possible. Such a fabulous night, exciting, new in particular have to

:06:48.:06:51.

feel you are a strong, strong candidate. You kick started the gold

:06:52.:06:57.

rush for Team GB. Yes, but at the same time I am very young, so you're

:06:58.:07:01.

up against people who are 30, 40, 50, 60, I think some of them. I have

:07:02.:07:07.

plenty of years to come back and hopefully build a profile again.

:07:08.:07:11.

Tonight is all about giving back to the family and the British swimming

:07:12.:07:13.

and to those people who have given so much to me. It is not really for

:07:14.:07:19.

me tonight, hopefully to give back to those kids who watched me at the

:07:20.:07:23.

Olympics and to the side of me. I am not very comfortable in a suit, more

:07:24.:07:27.

comfortable in my swimming stuff. That is what it is about. Hopefully

:07:28.:07:31.

I can come back tonight with lots of people inspired to get back in the

:07:32.:07:37.

water. Fine limit and Camilla lovely girlfriend. Does he take it well in

:07:38.:07:41.

his stride always? Yes, he loves it. He is Willy good at being humble,

:07:42.:07:46.

and just taking it in his stride, really, he loves it. Sensible shoes

:07:47.:07:51.

this time, not the dramatic level issues you were last year. Yes, a

:07:52.:07:55.

bit more sensible. You have got to grow up now, haven't you? Always

:07:56.:08:04.

great to talk to you, you have had a fabulous season, many

:08:05.:08:04.

congratulations. Allan thank you. I have been joined by Kate

:08:05.:08:15.

Richardson-Walsh, who captained the GB female hockey team the globe. How

:08:16.:08:22.

does it feel to be part of this? It feels a bit surreal. To be back

:08:23.:08:26.

together again. This is the first time we have been back together

:08:27.:08:29.

since Rio. I am about to get mobbed now by them. It is a really special

:08:30.:08:35.

evening. They are very badly behaved. Exceptionally, but nothing

:08:36.:08:41.

to do with me any more, I am tired I am not in charge. A summary had

:08:42.:08:45.

offered you this at the beginning of the year, would you have taken it?

:08:46.:08:50.

Absolutely. Gold Medal, and to have a hockey person nominated in the

:08:51.:08:54.

short list I think is a really special moment for our sport. That

:08:55.:08:58.

final was agony to watch, what was it like to be part of it? Would like

:08:59.:09:02.

to keep fans on the edge of their seats. It was the best spectacle for

:09:03.:09:08.

sports. To win on penalty, to have a British team win on penalties was

:09:09.:09:12.

really great. Actually we were quite calm. We are in control, it is

:09:13.:09:15.

harder probably to watch than it is to play. And 10 billion people in --

:09:16.:09:24.

10 million people in GB watching you. We were in our own little

:09:25.:09:29.

bubble. So we could just focus on the job in hand. To find out that

:09:30.:09:32.

many people watched was a real treat. Very briefly, what has this

:09:33.:09:38.

done for women's Rocky? It has put it on the map and where it should

:09:39.:09:43.

be. Do you think you have a chance of winning the night? A lot of

:09:44.:09:48.

people will be rooting for you. The hockey family is vast. I am just

:09:49.:09:52.

proud to be one of the nominees. Thank you for talking to us.

:09:53.:10:00.

Onto our next contender for BBC Sports Personality of the Year

:10:01.:10:07.

Vostok let's take you back to the summer, Euro 2016, when Wales

:10:08.:10:10.

qualified for their first major tournament since 1958. Football is a

:10:11.:10:17.

team game, that when one man scores three goals, it could only be about

:10:18.:10:26.

him, Gareth Bale. Who started off at Southampton. Hard-working,

:10:27.:10:30.

level-headed, composed. Just a fantastic brand -- all-round

:10:31.:10:35.

footballer. The biggest attribute I could pay him is that he is a

:10:36.:10:41.

matchwinner. He is playing with the best and he doesn't look out of

:10:42.:10:44.

place, in fact he looks comfortable come he looks as if he is enjoying

:10:45.:10:51.

his life and his football. Real Madrid see Gareth Bale as part of

:10:52.:10:57.

their long-term plan, some accolade. Certain types of characters come

:10:58.:11:02.

into work and it is harder for other types. With him, years very calm, a

:11:03.:11:07.

family man, he is not interested in the razzmatazz that comes with being

:11:08.:11:13.

a Galactico. He just wants to get better as a player. He was a callous

:11:14.:11:18.

man for Wales in the qualifiers and in the Euros. He scored for Wales

:11:19.:11:25.

against England. That was the moment, I think that Wales thought

:11:26.:11:29.

Communion, we belong in this level, we can go on and be successful. Bail

:11:30.:11:36.

with another wicked delivery! Wales lead! As much as he is our best

:11:37.:11:40.

player, he is a world star, he is more than happy to give credit to

:11:41.:11:49.

his team mates. Very special, it is what it means to the whole country.

:11:50.:11:52.

Mice to us to say a little thank you as well for supporting us. Being

:11:53.:11:56.

there with the journey, amazing scenes. One we will never forget.

:11:57.:12:05.

The Wales boss Chris Como and joins me now on the carpet. Kris Commons

:12:06.:12:10.

have just seen that wonderful package about Gareth Bale. I guess

:12:11.:12:15.

the question most people want to ask is what is he like to manage? Very

:12:16.:12:23.

easy. He is a consummate professional. Highly motivated and

:12:24.:12:28.

very passionate. So for me as an international manager, he is perfect

:12:29.:12:36.

package. How much can you improve on perfection, that is left to achieve?

:12:37.:12:42.

You can always improve. Always room for improvement but he has that

:12:43.:12:46.

mentality that he wants to improve, keep on winning, keep being

:12:47.:12:50.

successful for club and country. I think all the best sportsmen have

:12:51.:12:56.

that same mentality. Just taking you back to those Euros. Have your feet

:12:57.:13:02.

touched the ground? Wales were so impressive, everyone got behind

:13:03.:13:07.

them. Yes, it was just one of those experiences that you never ever

:13:08.:13:10.

forget. Something that we have groomed about for a long time, every

:13:11.:13:14.

Welshman and women for decades, with we would never get to a tournament.

:13:15.:13:18.

We finally did, and then when we got there, I think the team did the

:13:19.:13:23.

country proud and we are very proud of the players. At the moment it is

:13:24.:13:30.

great to be a Welshman. Charlotte, it has been lovely to see you as

:13:31.:13:34.

well. Huw I am really proud of Wales and the whole Welsh team. Anything

:13:35.:13:39.

they did there was a bonus. They got to the semifinal so got to be plays

:13:40.:13:44.

with that, Gareth Bale, three goals in the qualifiers, so very pleased.

:13:45.:13:53.

Have a great evening, both of you. I have been joined by Dame Sevastova

:13:54.:13:58.

about cycling, actually Britain's most decorated Paralympian. That is

:13:59.:14:02.

some achievement, well your Gold Medals, congratulations. How does it

:14:03.:14:08.

feel? It is a huge honour. Still a couple of the medals away from the

:14:09.:14:12.

record of 16. But it is fantastic to be here and to have had such a

:14:13.:14:16.

successful year. You must be very proud of what you have achieved?

:14:17.:14:24.

Yes. My parents, taking me to those early morning training sessions when

:14:25.:14:31.

I was a swimmer. Now my husband. It is a huge team effort. You are a man

:14:32.:14:36.

now come in three years ago you became a mum, put on a lot of

:14:37.:14:39.

weight, it must have been very difficult to have the discipline to

:14:40.:14:47.

get back? I had four stone on me and wondered if it would never come off

:14:48.:14:50.

but at that point I did not feel any pressure to come back. If it came

:14:51.:14:53.

off and did come back, it would be brilliant. But I achieved other

:14:54.:14:56.

thing I ever wanted, and anything since then is a huge bonus will stop

:14:57.:15:00.

I am more driven than ever because having lose out there in Rio was the

:15:01.:15:03.

icing on the cake. Being able to celebrate with her was better than

:15:04.:15:07.

it had ever been without her. If fantastic opportunity when you have

:15:08.:15:11.

got kids to take them with you to the games. And of course you are a

:15:12.:15:17.

game, how does that make you feel? Still very surreal. It was four

:15:18.:15:21.

years ago in the news Honours list, these are the things you never aim

:15:22.:15:26.

for, you never expect. I hope I am able to represent my sport in a good

:15:27.:15:30.

way and use the title to help people not as fortunate as me. A lot of

:15:31.:15:35.

luck tonight, I hope you have a great evening and congratulations

:15:36.:15:42.

again. Sarah, thank you. Thank you. This young lady needs no

:15:43.:15:46.

introduction. I am joined by the most decorated female track cyclist

:15:47.:15:52.

in history. Laura, can adversely say you look stunning! Vila thank you.

:15:53.:15:57.

We can get dressed up every now and again, can't we? How long did it

:15:58.:16:01.

take you to put on that ensemble? About three hours! I have good

:16:02.:16:07.

friends, they came here to help me, bless them. Since we welcome your

:16:08.:16:11.

feet must not have touched the ground? It has been incredible. At

:16:12.:16:16.

the end of 2015, if you said to me what will your year be like I could

:16:17.:16:19.

not have imagined it would be like this. It has been way more than I

:16:20.:16:23.

ever could have imagined. It has gone to form, everything you have

:16:24.:16:30.

done has just been sublime. Thanks! : the ball started rolling back in

:16:31.:16:34.

the World Championships, I needed to get that under my doubt, be well

:16:35.:16:37.

champion in the Omni and again given then that gave me the whole year.

:16:38.:16:42.

Then in the deal honestly, I could not have dreamt of coming away with

:16:43.:16:46.

my two gold medals. Looking at your stats, four Olympic gold medals,

:16:47.:16:51.

seven world Gold Medals and ten European Gold Medals and you're

:16:52.:16:56.

still only 24. Yeah, I don't know how it's happened! Only a short

:16:57.:16:59.

career but a packed one, I would say, so far! I just love it, every

:17:00.:17:05.

minute of it, and that is why. With that comes success. Like you say, I

:17:06.:17:11.

just can't be more proud I guess of my own achievement only but the

:17:12.:17:15.

whole of Team GB. It has just been an incredible year. As I said, you

:17:16.:17:19.

are looking amazing, you have had a fantastic year, congratulations on

:17:20.:17:22.

the wedding, please enjoy your night. Thank you, cheers! From Laura

:17:23.:17:30.

Kenny to Jason Kenny, the other half. I'm not going to say which is

:17:31.:17:33.

the other hot because it is not for me to say. Congratulations on a

:17:34.:17:37.

wonderful year. Thank you very much, it has not been a bad one. Have

:17:38.:17:44.

equalled Sir Chris Hoy's Olympic record. Unbelievable. Yes. It was an

:17:45.:17:51.

amazing experience. Try and enjoy it. Do you ever pinch yourself in

:17:52.:17:55.

thing that you have achieved? I don't really think about it until

:17:56.:18:00.

people tell me, like just now. You are married now, congratulations, is

:18:01.:18:08.

there a friendly rivalry, going on? It is not something we think about.

:18:09.:18:13.

It is really funny commuter Olympic medals and they are amazing and

:18:14.:18:16.

special and the memories are incredible, that then you can put

:18:17.:18:20.

them in this October. It is a funny one. Not really in your sock draw?

:18:21.:18:30.

We should get a display. Seems a shame to hide them away. How do you

:18:31.:18:34.

have your cycling relationship, what is it like for you watching Laura in

:18:35.:18:40.

action? It is harder watching, I have a new appreciation for what my

:18:41.:18:42.

mum goes through, watching someone you care about going around the

:18:43.:18:46.

track you don't want them to the fan hurt themselves but you know how

:18:47.:18:49.

much it means. It is much harder watching someone compete than

:18:50.:18:54.

competing yourself. Do you urge each other on? Absolutely. And now helps

:18:55.:19:00.

motivation when you are having those bad days and you see your partner

:19:01.:19:05.

going forward. We help each other. And here she is. Hello!

:19:06.:19:12.

Congratulations on your marriage, but what a spectacular year this has

:19:13.:19:18.

been to you as a couple. It has been incredible. Looking back at 2015, it

:19:19.:19:21.

has been way more than I could have imagined, looking forward to another

:19:22.:19:27.

end of year. But as athlete and as a couple I guess. Do you have any time

:19:28.:19:34.

off for Christmas? Yes, but we have the family around. I would not call

:19:35.:19:40.

it time off, really! We need a harder -- a holiday after Christmas.

:19:41.:19:55.

Enjoy it. I am joined by Alistair Bone latecomer changed the title

:19:56.:20:00.

again. You have done it again. Triathlon is one of those boards

:20:01.:20:03.

were the Olympics are bigger than anything else. The goal was to try

:20:04.:20:08.

and win the race in Rio and thankfully I did it. We can relax a

:20:09.:20:13.

bit. You are a Yorkshireman, very well but presented at the sports

:20:14.:20:18.

personality this year. The region itself is so rich with talent.

:20:19.:20:23.

Absolutely. We have seen a massive increase in sports talent around the

:20:24.:20:30.

country. 60 medals in total is incredible. Yorkshire especially. I

:20:31.:20:34.

am very proud to be from Yorkshire and I would really like to stay here

:20:35.:20:37.

and say I could count on the Yorkshire boat tonight but I can't

:20:38.:20:40.

because there are some inevitable from Yorkshire which is brilliant

:20:41.:20:47.

but maybe a bit unfortunate as well. Happy before. The atmosphere is

:20:48.:20:54.

incredible. Yes, anyone who was involved in sport, it is one of

:20:55.:20:59.

those things. I'm about trying to stay up to watch it when I was ten

:21:00.:21:02.

years old and it had been too late for me to see the final result. To

:21:03.:21:05.

be here tonight and to have a chance to stand on that stage is so

:21:06.:21:08.

special. Something I will others remember. Now Johnny tonight? Yes,

:21:09.:21:17.

he was here somewhere. We are not joined at the hip! It has been

:21:18.:21:22.

fantastic watching you, a great ambassador for triathlon and you

:21:23.:21:26.

must be very proud how the sport has taken. Yes, I am. I started doing

:21:27.:21:32.

triathlon when I was six or seven or eight years old, no one knew what

:21:33.:21:36.

was. I have been really fortunate to be part of it and riding that wave

:21:37.:21:41.

on triathlon, coming from an obscure sport to something everyone almost

:21:42.:21:44.

knows about it. It has been incredible and one of the fantastic

:21:45.:21:48.

things about me being here tonight is hopefully some young people out

:21:49.:21:51.

there can have a go at triathlon, a sport that has given me so much.

:21:52.:21:53.

Enjoy your evening, thank you. He was the first Briton to win the

:21:54.:22:02.

US Masters in 20 years, Danny Willett. Good evening to you, Danny,

:22:03.:22:07.

what a year. It has been fantastic, not a bad way to tap it. It is great

:22:08.:22:12.

to be here tonight, it has been a busy year so to finally stop playing

:22:13.:22:15.

a couple of weeks ago and Masna to actually enjoy some of the

:22:16.:22:18.

highlights of what a fantastic year we have had. Are you saying me you

:22:19.:22:26.

have not gone out and done a bit of putting practice? They have been

:22:27.:22:30.

away for a couple of weeks, the clubs. Travelling thousands of miles

:22:31.:22:33.

across different countries, it is nice to get back home, lock the

:22:34.:22:40.

door, just enjoy normal family life. You talk about Nick and so on. At

:22:41.:22:49.

eight the module studios it was for the family. Perspective of the

:22:50.:22:54.

Masters. Just reminders, when the baby came, compared with the

:22:55.:23:01.

Masters? He was going to come on the Sunday but he came ten days early,

:23:02.:23:05.

on the Tuesday. Early enough to give me time to it at there to America

:23:06.:23:11.

and do my job. And you still were able to concentrate? Yes, just a

:23:12.:23:16.

whirlwind 12 days that started fantastically and fantastically.

:23:17.:23:22.

Just a crazy moment in my life. And it was traumatic, the way Jordan

:23:23.:23:24.

Spieth sort of collapsed dramatically in the last round. Yes.

:23:25.:23:30.

It is a tough golf course around that place, the pressure we are

:23:31.:23:36.

under, that is what it is about. We just tried to keep putting pressure

:23:37.:23:40.

on and fortunately enough we put enough on as to where there was a

:23:41.:23:43.

little crack in the arm and will able to come through. Just briefly,

:23:44.:23:48.

what next? Christmas and then we will be out in Abu Dhabi in late

:23:49.:23:53.

January. We wish you well, Danny Willett, good luck tonight. I have

:23:54.:23:56.

been joined by one of my oldest athletic pals, Darren Campbell. It

:23:57.:24:01.

is great to see you here the night. It is good to be here. I am here

:24:02.:24:09.

with Get Inspired, it is called the hashtag big thank you. We are

:24:10.:24:12.

getting big sports stars to make those calls to the volunteers and

:24:13.:24:18.

say thank you. So important to give back, and on Skype, we have Gillian,

:24:19.:24:24.

who is a volunteer at a boxing gym in Redditch that has been set up by

:24:25.:24:31.

Sarah. Hello to both of you. Hello. Hello. Tell us how you got involved.

:24:32.:24:46.

Yes, basically I was brought in from James Winston, who did a bit of

:24:47.:24:51.

boxing with me at first, and then he asked me if I wanted to do

:24:52.:24:56.

volunteering, and then he sent me over to Sarah to talk to. That is

:24:57.:25:05.

how I came to be here. And Sarah, for you, how fantastic is it to have

:25:06.:25:14.

Gillian at your gym? She is a godsend. Without her we could not do

:25:15.:25:17.

half the things that we do. We have a lot of classes, and she has always

:25:18.:25:24.

got a smile on her face. She welcomes everyone in. She helps with

:25:25.:25:28.

the inclusive work as well. Just a real credit to the club and to

:25:29.:25:36.

herself. Fantastic. Brilliant to speak to both of you, keep up the

:25:37.:25:41.

great work that you do. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. The

:25:42.:25:48.

work that people like Gillian do, if it has inspired you, take a look at

:25:49.:25:50.

this. It has been another incredible year

:25:51.:26:35.

for Mo Farah, one of the 16 contenders tonight. He was one of

:26:36.:26:41.

the stars of London 2012, and this year in Rio, he completed that

:26:42.:26:47.

double double, making him one of only the second people to do that

:26:48.:26:55.

over the five and 10,000 metres. 2016 was pretty incredible. I was

:26:56.:26:58.

mainly thinking about seeing if I could win two more gold medals and

:26:59.:27:07.

retain my title. Here we go. He had a mesmerising effect on me when he

:27:08.:27:12.

fell over and bounced off the track. I just went down into the ground. He

:27:13.:27:18.

has fallen, just got a little clip! At that point I was panicking, my

:27:19.:27:22.

race is over, I'm done. Everything is over, everything I have worked

:27:23.:27:26.

for. And then in the back of my mind it was like no, it can't happen. I

:27:27.:27:33.

have worked too hard for this. I promise my daughter over to get a

:27:34.:27:36.

gold medal so I thought I could not let her down. Has Mo got the power,

:27:37.:27:43.

the strength, the speed to defend this title? Mo Farah wins the gold!

:27:44.:27:52.

Who wants to be away from where they grew up, where they have friends and

:27:53.:27:58.

families? No one. If you want to become a champion, it comes with it.

:27:59.:28:09.

Mo, going for the double double. For me it was, I need to go for this and

:28:10.:28:14.

see if I can win one more goal for my son. Mo Farah is going to get

:28:15.:28:18.

gold for Great Britain again. Four Olympic titles, four Olympic gold

:28:19.:28:29.

medals. I wanted to achieve what I could and then won the time was

:28:30.:28:34.

right stop and say, I did myself proud, I did my country proud, I did

:28:35.:28:38.

what I could do. I am joined by somebody who is described as one of

:28:39.:28:45.

the oldest gold medallists of all time - Nick Skelton. Do you get fed

:28:46.:28:49.

up with the age thing? Everybody looks as me that Wheeler -- looks at

:28:50.:28:55.

me as an old man. I don't think about it. It was great at the age of

:28:56.:29:00.

58 to win a gold medal in your seventh Olympics. A I am lucky I

:29:01.:29:04.

could go on that long, and I am really proud to be able to represent

:29:05.:29:09.

my country for so many years, really. To win gold in Rio was an

:29:10.:29:18.

honour for me, especially with the help of all the people who got us

:29:19.:29:27.

there. Without people spending monetary on -- money on lottery

:29:28.:29:32.

tickets, Team GB and so on. And you did it after breaking your neck. I

:29:33.:29:38.

did, but I had a couple of years. It was great to come back, and I would

:29:39.:29:43.

always say that I can't do anything else, really, so I had to go back

:29:44.:29:47.

nominated to be the BBC Sports nominated to be the BBC Sports

:29:48.:29:55.

Personality Of The Year? It is great to be nominated, and I am privileged

:29:56.:29:58.

to be standing here tonight with some great sports people. It is

:29:59.:30:05.

probably one of the only chance I will get to stand on that stage.

:30:06.:30:09.

Time is running out for me, really. What next? Do you see Tokyo in your

:30:10.:30:17.

sites? I said it before and I will say it again, I don't think I will

:30:18.:30:23.

go to Tokyo, because I really enjoy riding Big Star now, and he probably

:30:24.:30:27.

has a couple of years left, and when he retires, I will. We wish you all

:30:28.:30:31.

the best, and very good luck tonight. Thanks. Last year's sports

:30:32.:30:39.

personality was Andy Murray - can he do it again this year? We saw him

:30:40.:30:45.

retain his Wimbledon title, become Olympic champion again, and take

:30:46.:30:47.

that all-important world number one slot. Oh, and he became a dad as

:30:48.:30:59.

well. After matches, I feel a little bit more level-headed. I'm not

:31:00.:31:03.

stressed about the outcome of matches or tournaments now, which

:31:04.:31:09.

has allowed me to deal with things probably a little bit better, seeing

:31:10.:31:12.

things from a slightly different perspective. He's there. Straight

:31:13.:31:21.

sets by again. A supreme performance, a first-class

:31:22.:31:25.

tournament. To get over the line at Wimbledon was big for me. I

:31:26.:31:31.

definitely enjoyed that one more than any of the other major

:31:32.:31:37.

tournaments I have one. -- I have won. Andy Murray leads out Great

:31:38.:31:43.

Britain and Northern Ireland. A great experience carrying the flag

:31:44.:31:46.

as well, and I never expected to do that. Andy Murray is a double

:31:47.:31:56.

Olympic gold medallist. It was one of the toughest finals I have come

:31:57.:32:01.

through. Emotionally, I found it pretty draining. Amazing, obviously,

:32:02.:32:08.

to win another Olympic gold. Andy is definitely number one in the world.

:32:09.:32:14.

He is the best player. He has been extremely patient, he has

:32:15.:32:17.

persevered, and he has gotten better, which is hard to do when you

:32:18.:32:21.

have been dealt a bunch of blows against guys, some of the greatest

:32:22.:32:32.

players ever to live, and to come out of that as number one is

:32:33.:32:39.

amazing. Am joined back -- I am joined by Jamie Vardy. I saw you

:32:40.:32:44.

last game in non-league football - Fleetwood against someone. I

:32:45.:32:54.

remember that. Can you believe the things that have happened to you

:32:55.:32:57.

since then? Not at all. I still pinch myself most days, but it is a

:32:58.:33:03.

come from and the hard work that has come from and the hard work that has

:33:04.:33:07.

had to go into it. It makes you wonder how much other talent is out

:33:08.:33:11.

there that doesn't get the chance to break through. I think there's

:33:12.:33:17.

loads. I have set up the academy looking at non-league players trying

:33:18.:33:20.

to get them into the professional game. The scouting system we have, I

:33:21.:33:23.

think there is loads, so hopefully that will produce more. You went to

:33:24.:33:29.

a championship club, you get promotion, you go to the Premier

:33:30.:33:32.

League, you win the Premier League, top scorer, Player of the Year,

:33:33.:33:37.

playing for England - it is phenomenal. It is unbelievable, a

:33:38.:33:42.

very strange feeling, but if you asked any English football of what

:33:43.:33:46.

the pinnacle of the Korea is, it would be representing your country.

:33:47.:33:51.

Long may it continue. Tonight, you are one of the candidates to be the

:33:52.:33:54.

Sports Personality Of The Year - how does that feel? It is amazing, but

:33:55.:34:01.

there is tough competition. Everyone has had a remarkable year in their

:34:02.:34:05.

sport, so we will see. And they are filing past you right now. They sure

:34:06.:34:11.

are. With this season we had last year, hopefully we can pick up the

:34:12.:34:17.

award for team of the year as well. The team did very well in the end

:34:18.:34:22.

yesterday. It showed what we are about - fighting spirit. That is one

:34:23.:34:27.

of them things that happens in football. With the boys making the

:34:28.:34:30.

comeback like they did, it shows what they are about. What is your

:34:31.:34:38.

ambition now? Who knows? Football- wise, we need to make sure we pick

:34:39.:34:41.

more points up, and then come February, we will go back to the

:34:42.:34:47.

Champions League. Best of luck tonight. Have a good one.

:34:48.:34:53.

Nicola Adams has been one of the most decorated female boxers in

:34:54.:34:58.

history. It has been amazing to watch her do what she does

:34:59.:35:03.

emphatically. It is so busy here. Let's have a look at how she has

:35:04.:35:14.

gone on. The best memory of 2016 has to be being on the podium and

:35:15.:35:19.

receiving my gold medal. I like the pressure, I thrive on it and use it

:35:20.:35:23.

to my advantage. It makes me perform better. I like that everything is on

:35:24.:35:27.

the line and everybody is coming after me. That's what makes me get

:35:28.:35:31.

out of bed in the morning, the thought of someone wanting to take

:35:32.:35:35.

my title. It's just me when I step in the ring, but I think about the

:35:36.:35:43.

sacrifices my family made to get me there. Nicola Adams looking to join

:35:44.:35:49.

a short list of boxing legends. I said to myself, this is it. She is

:35:50.:35:58.

like, I will do it for you, Mum. She didn't look nervous or anything. I

:35:59.:36:03.

was on the edge of my seat, and I thought, is she? Is and she? Your

:36:04.:36:08.

heart is pounding and your stomach is turning. You're just waiting to

:36:09.:36:11.

hear the name before you start celebrating. COMMENTATOR: Nicola

:36:12.:36:19.

Adams! She lets out a triumphant roar, having been crowned as Olympic

:36:20.:36:24.

champion for the second successive time. Overcome with emotion after

:36:25.:36:29.

hearing the anthem and seeing the union Jack raised.

:36:30.:36:48.

The BBC get inspired unsung hero award is a celebration of the

:36:49.:36:53.

development and running of grassroots sport. With me here are

:36:54.:37:00.

15 people from across the UK, and one of them will be the national

:37:01.:37:04.

unsung hero. We will have a chat with one or two might. Rachel, you

:37:05.:37:07.

are from Glasgow. Explain what you do. I like helping people learn to

:37:08.:37:16.

ride bikes. I go out with a women's cycling group, which is to provide

:37:17.:37:19.

women with the opportunity to ride bikes in a comfortable and safe

:37:20.:37:27.

environment. I coach with Glasgow Riders, and I also work with

:37:28.:37:32.

freewheel north, and accessible charity to help anybody have a shot

:37:33.:37:37.

at our bike, regardless. Good to see you here. Andy, you're from

:37:38.:37:45.

Coleraine. What do you do? We facilitate football on a weekly

:37:46.:37:50.

basis for upwards of 5000 children throughout the whole of the north

:37:51.:37:57.

coast of Northern Ireland. It is special to us, and a key element is

:37:58.:38:05.

that it is just fun. It is about participating and the benefits that

:38:06.:38:09.

everybody gets out of that. Vicky from Cwmbran, tell us what you do.

:38:10.:38:18.

We have a women's football club, and be like getting children involved in

:38:19.:38:21.

playing sports. Verve, from Brighton, explain what you do. I

:38:22.:38:30.

work with Brighton's LGBT sports charity. We try to get people from

:38:31.:38:34.

the community involved in sports. Lovely to speak to you. I would love

:38:35.:38:39.

to speak to all of you. There can only be one winner, but will you

:38:40.:38:47.

enjoy whatever? Yes! Best of luck. I'm joined by Max Whitlock, double

:38:48.:38:53.

gold medallist from gymnastics. Great to see you. You too. Have your

:38:54.:39:01.

feet touch the ground? It has been an incredible 2016, and to be

:39:02.:39:04.

nominated again for Sports Personality Of The Year is such an

:39:05.:39:07.

achievement. It is such an honour to be here. It has been crazy, for the

:39:08.:39:14.

whole of Team GB. Personally, it feels unreal. You introducing me

:39:15.:39:21.

then with double gold Olympic champion, it doesn't feel real. I am

:39:22.:39:27.

looking forward to tonight, I have been since I was selected. What has

:39:28.:39:32.

it meant for gymnastics? I know that your performances will have inspired

:39:33.:39:35.

so many young people to want to get involved. That is the mission. Since

:39:36.:39:41.

London 2012, it is just getting people involved in gymnastics. It's

:39:42.:39:48.

amazing to say that, because what we do, we love it. I want as many kids

:39:49.:39:52.

to try it as possible, because I know how great it is. Try

:39:53.:39:59.

gymnastics, that is all I encourage. What is next to you? It all kicks

:40:00.:40:06.

off in March. The European Championships are coming around

:40:07.:40:09.

quickly, then the World Championships, so it doesn't stop. I

:40:10.:40:12.

will be back in the gym, training hard. Will you let your hair down

:40:13.:40:19.

tonight? I know it is now fracking. Of course. I will make use of this

:40:20.:40:24.

time. I have had a small break. And I have been looking forward to

:40:25.:40:26.

tonight since I was selected. It will be great to catch up with

:40:27.:40:31.

everyone, all the contestants. Fabulous to see you again. Many

:40:32.:40:36.

congratulations. Thank you very much. I'm delighted to say that Ryan

:40:37.:40:44.

Giggs, absolute legend of Manchester City, is here. You know what it is

:40:45.:40:49.

like to win this. Yes, I was fortunate enough to win it was an

:40:50.:40:52.

unbelievable feeling. As I said on the night, I grew up watching the

:40:53.:40:56.

programme, and I think it is part of everyone's life growing up. What is

:40:57.:41:01.

happening with you now? You have left Manchester United. Are you

:41:02.:41:09.

freelance? Straight from school, I joined United. I went from playing

:41:10.:41:13.

to coaching. I am enjoying the free time, getting to watch some

:41:14.:41:18.

football. What about the way that Wales played this summer? It was

:41:19.:41:23.

inspirational for the nation, really. What the lads did and what

:41:24.:41:27.

Chris did was unbelievable. I don't think anyone thought they would do

:41:28.:41:32.

so well. Chris said it, to be fair, we're not here to make the numbers

:41:33.:41:36.

up and we want to do the best we can. And they did. What do you want

:41:37.:41:42.

to do in the next few years? I always said I wanted to go into

:41:43.:41:47.

coaching. I am taking a bit of time, visiting different clubs, watching

:41:48.:41:51.

some football, but I will go back to coaching. Ryan Giggs, thanks for

:41:52.:41:58.

joining us. Have a lovely night. That's it, we have counted them all

:41:59.:42:02.

in. But who will be BBC Sports Personality Of The Year? From us

:42:03.:42:09.

here in Birmingham, have a very good night. Goodbye.

:42:10.:42:16.
