I'm not into it as a sport - but what Froome has achieved has been spectacular to say the least.

On the woman's nominations I think Johanna Konta and Eilidh Doyle will be on the shortlist.

4 x 100m men's relay team might have just taken the team award away from the women's cricket team...

Well obviously Harry Kane and Lewis Hamilton should be fighting it out for last place.

In fact shouldn't Hamilton be in the Overseas SPOTY  category these days?

AJ, Froome or Sir Mo for me.

Adam Peaty gets my vote too but I expect it will be between Joshua and Hamilton...

Joshua for my vote. Hope he gives Lewis a smack on the way to collect it.

The bookmakers haven't been wrong in a long time with SPOTY.

They hav Joshua at 2/9f.

The next closest is Hamilton at 6/1.

Farah is 22/1.

It's a foregone conclusion and rightly so in my view.  What Joshua has done is remarkable.

And he's actually a great sportsman with what I would describe as a personality. Grounded, generous, honest. I suppose that could be a manufactured persona for the cameras but if so it's far better than being a twat like Hamilton.

But Hamilton's persona of being a twat could just be for the cameras. Maybe he's OK in real life :secret:

I had considered that, but then realised that only a true twat would think it was a good idea to play the character of being a twat for the cameras. Look at Tyson Fury... +++

I'm not a Hamilton hater (can't be arsed expending any energy or emotion on him) but I'll be delighted if AJ gets its. Amazing achievement, has a personality and highly likeable with it too

To be fair even I think it's a bit cruel, but I thought you'd enjoy it. :grin:
