Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix wins BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year 2020

The trophy was presented to the rising star by Blue Peter presenters Richie Driss, Lindsey Russell, Mwaka Mudenda, Adam Beales and the Blue Peter Young Judge Lucy Tristram.

The award follows a successful year for diver Andrea after she claimed her first solo international gold medal at the FINA Diving Grand Prix in Rostock in the Women's 10m Platform, aged just 15. This added to her winning a maiden senior British title in the same event at the British National Diving Championships just a month previously.

Andrea follows in the footsteps of 2019 winner Caroline Dubois and past sporting superstars like Ellie Simmonds, Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray and Tom Daley, who was on the Young Sports Personality of the Year judging panel alongside 2018 Young Sports Personality of the Year winner Kare Adenegan.

The BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year shortlist and winner was selected from nominations made to the BBC and by sports governing bodies via the Youth Sport Trust.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year takes place on Sunday 20 December at 8pm live on BBC One from Media City UK in Salford.
