BBC votes Andy Murray as the second-greatest British sports personality

Andy Murray has been struggling physically in the last couple of years due to injuries but the 31-year-old remains one of the greatest and popular British athletes. As reported by BBC, Murray has been named as the greatest BBC Sports Personality of all time according to a public pool shared by The Radio Times that saw more than 11,000 people taking part.

Murray had his best 2016 season in career winning Wimbledon for the second time and becoming world No. 1 for the first time. On the list, Murray was just behind the British soccer icon Bobby Moore, who was the captain of the 1966 World Cup-winning English side.

Lewis Hamilton finished third, followed by Steve Redgrave and Chris Hoy. Mo Farah was sixth. In a recent interview, published for the Brisbane International, Murray said: 'I’m feeling physically a little bit better every day.

It’s obviously been a tough year with the hip injury and the surgery, but I’m getting closer. I’ve been practising already for a few days and I’ve still got a couple of months to get myself in the best shape.' Commenting on ATP Finals possibly moving out from London in 2021, the ATP Chief Chris Kermode said: 'It’s a great tournament.

We want to keep it here in London and we will do everything we can to keep it here. we move it to different regions and markets or do we establish it in one place? That’s something for the ATP to decide. It’s not for me to say what other people can and can’t deliver, but the O2 has proved it can deliver year on year.'
