Tour De France and Olympic cyclist Bradley Wiggins picked up the sports personality of the year last night. And although we love Jessica Ennis, who came second, we have to admire Wiggins acceptance speech.
Firstly, he thanked his grandmother who he said ‘pushed redial’ so much to vote for him and said he would pay her back the phone call fee. Secondly, he said: ‘I’m not going to swear tonight so I’m just going to say thank you very much to everyone who picked up the phone and voted. We have had all that jungle stuff and X Factor so thank you to all the people who picked up the phone and paid their £1.50.’
He’s humble as well as in touch with what’s going on in the world…even if Jessica is better looking.
