Sports Personality: Paul Gascoigne victorious in 1990

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we take a look at the archive to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1990, footballer Paul Gascoigne was named Sports Personality of the Year.

He was an integral part of the England team that reached the last four of the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

His performances and passion - as well as his iconic tears during the semi-final defeat by Germany in Turin - made him hugely popular.

The midfielder eventually won 57 caps.

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.
