Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan host the 2016 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. Now in its 63rd year, the show recognises the standout achievers and relives the must-see sporting moments in front of a 12,000 strong crowd at Birmingham's Genting Arena. There are 16 contenders shortlisted for the main Sports Personality of the Year Award, and the result is determined by a public vote. Team of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and Unsung Hero are some of the other awards to be given out, and the inspirational films, emotional moments and live performances capture all the highlights from an incredible year of sport.
