UK broadcaster the BBC hosted its annual Sports Personality of the Year event last night.
The huge event took place at Echo Arena in Liverpool and attracted thousands of athletes. It was screened live on BBC1. One of those performing red carpet hosting duties was Olympic-medal winning diver, Tom Daley.
One of those to attend the event was the current holder of the World’s Strongest Man title – Brit Eddie Hall. What better way to demonstrate his strength than to lift a visibly nervous Daley above his head using just one hand?

The winner of the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year was announced to be Mo Farah, the four-time Olympic champion long-distance runner. It’s the fifth time he’s been nominated for the award but the first time he’d won.
‘I didn’t imagine I was ever going to win this but anything can happen. If you work hard you can achieve your dreams,’ he said via video link on being presented with the award.
