Sports Personality: Cricketer David Steele wins 1975 award

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we look back through the archives to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1975, cricketer David Steele was named Sports Personality of the Year after a breakthrough year in which he made his England debut and had a brilliant summer with the bat, scoring over 250 runs in three Tests.

Although Steele's efforts could not prevent Australia retaining the Ashes, he became an instant fans' favourite and went on to be named one of the Wisden cricketers of the year in 1976.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year will celebrate its 60th show when the 2013 event is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday 15 December from 1940 GMT on BBC One. Further coverage on the BBC Sport website and Radio 5 live.
