2016 highlight: Where do we start? Wimbledon champion, Olympic champion, and current World Number One after winning the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Murray won Sports Personality of the Year in 2015, and is hot favourite to do so again – although he has said that he will be unable to attend the ceremony in person this year.
