He was also named Young Sports Personality of the Year in 2004.

Andy Murray was presented the award by Irish boxing legend Barry McGuigan, in front of 7,500 people at the SSE Arena.

"Thank you very much. I didn't expect this," Murray said.

"A friend sent me a message the other day with an article saying: 'Andy Murray is duller than a weekend in Worthing,' which I thought was a bit harsh - on Worthing.''

"Congratulations to everyone who was involved tonight. This has been a five-year journey - we were down in the bottom level of tennis and now we're number one.''

"I dedicate my life to this sport and I work extremely hard every day to make you proud."
