BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year

11.12.2007 | Off Court

Roger beat competition from Bryan Habana (South Africa, rugby) and Padraig Harrington (Ireland, golf) to claim the Overseas Sports Personality of the Year Award. The award is given by the BBC on an annual basis to the non-British sportsman or sportswoman considered to have made the most substantial contribution to sport in that year.


After having received the trophy in 2004 and 2006, Roger is now the only athlete next to Muhammad Ali to have won the award three times.


Check out the video of Boris Becker receiving the award for Roger below.
