A UNIQUE EVENT TO MARK A UNIQUE YEAR OF SPORT

The 2021 Laureus World Sports Awards will be a ‘virtual’ event, in place of the annual gala ceremony in order to respect continued social distancing measures.  However, the Awards – to be held in early May - will continue to celebrate the achievements of sportsmen and women and their impact on society.

This is a very special moment for me. Everyone knows how highly I value my Laureus Awards, so to win another would have been wonderful, but to win two is a truly unique honour.

I am so honoured to be in this room. I’ve been inspired by so many of you over the course of my career. Sport has a unique opportunity to change people in ways they never expected. Thank you all so much for your respect.
