In his first four games for Pro 12 team Ospreys, 18-year-old Keelan scored eight tries, including a hat-trick when the team were playing away at Lyon in the European Challenge cup.

He has been compared to Wales record try-scorer Shane Williams, with his coach Steve Tandy saying he is an "unbelievable finisher".

Ellie Robinson (Para-Swimming)

As if that wasn't enough, she also broke a British record and won bronze in the 100m freestyle.

The winner will receive the award on BBC One's The One Show at 7pm on 14 December.
