Despite what was said about the results on Twitter, BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2018 remained star-studded affair, to say the least. It was sad to see the likes of Georgia Hall and Tyson Fury being omitted from the shortlist for the prestigious award, but their presence made the event lively than ever.
And as always, the red carpet was a vivacious affair, with the likes of Harry Kane, Tyson Fury and winner Geraint Thomas gracing the event with their partners. That being said, let’s take a sneak peek at the pictures:
Kane, who was considered as one heavy favourite for the title, was joined by his fiancee Katie Goodland. Dressed up in a grey suit, the striker was complimented to perfection by Katie, who donned a lovely black single slit dress. The England striker, however, finished third.
The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury’s omission from the six-person shortlist raised a couple of eyebrows, but that didn’t seem to have left any mark as he looked cheerful throughout. And as always, Fury was accompanied by his lovely wife Paris, who Fury met 12 years ago in a mutual friend’s wedding.
Sir Mo Farah:
The winner of 2017 Sports Personality Of the Year Award, Sir Mo Farah graced the event with his gorgeous wife, Tania Nell. It was Mo who presented Geraint Thomas his award on the night. Dressed in all black, the 35-year-old athlete was complimented by his partner Tania, who donned a lovely white dress which had golden embroidery done on the top.
Cricketer James Anderson was amongst the other nominees on the six-person list and the 36-year-old was accompanied by his beautiful wife Daniella Lloyd. While he donned a chequered grey suit followed by what appeared as a purple tie, his better half looked lovely in a navy blue dress.
It was a night to remember for Geraint Thomas, who won the 2018 Tour de France earlier this year, becoming only the third Brit to win the race after Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome. With the triumph, Geraint – who showed up in a chequered suit – also became the first Welshman to win the award since footballer Ryan Giggs in 2009. Meanwhile, this gracious night for Geraint was accompanied by his Sara Elen.
