Last night Mercedes F1 driver Lewis Hamilton was named BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year 2014. The driver had the suit on, he collected the huge trophy and… he also had his bulldog Roscoe by his side.
So, while Twitter had messages for Hamilton after his win, Roscoe was getting tongues (and tails) wagging too…
And here he is, Lewis Hamilton and his bulldog Roscoe

We’re pretty sure Roscoe’s just wanting the photographers to get his good side

Runner-up Rory McIlroy shared his support
Thanks to all who voted for me! Congrats to all the candidates and especially @LewisHamilton, thoroughly deserved and a worthy winner!

There were a few grumbles about the result
1 in 3 people voted for Lewis Hamilton certainly not reflective of what people saying on here. Must have been too busy voting to tweet!!
