The golfer Sergio Garcia doesn't think he is the Spaniard sportsman of the year. The golfer won a Major title at Augusta's Masters, but his compatriots did really well. Rafael Nadal won two Grand Slam titles and became World No.

1 again. Speaking about BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, interviewed by Sport 360 Garcia admitted: 'I would definitely be behind Rafa but hopefully I would be top five. I’ve won some nice trophies from around the area where I’m from and some press awards.

There’s one next year that is national and I’ve been mentioned for one, but I doubt it’s sportsman because I would give it to Rafa. I think I’ve done fairly well but I don’t think I’ve been the number one sportsman.

We’re fortunate we have a lot.' Garcia is competing in the Dubai event this week. Another Spaniard athlete who did really well is MotoGP driver Marc Marquez, who won his 6th Championship title last week.
