SPOTY's Bailey Matthews: 'I was playing Minecraft!'

BBC Sports Personality of the Year is a glittering night for all the stars taking part, but some will remember it more than others.

Davis Cup winner Andy Murray took the main prize and jockey AP McCoy was given a Lifetime Achievement award, but the loudest standing ovation was saved for Bailey Matthews, an eight-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, who completed his first triathlon unaided.

He won the Helen Rollason Award for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity, in memory of the BBC presenter who died of cancer in 1999.

BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent sat down with Bailey and his dad, Jonathan, the morning after the ceremony.
