Lewis Hamilton is nominated for Sportsman of the Year after picking up his sixth Formula One world title, while his team Mercedes are also nominated for Team of the Year.

Alice Tai, who picked up seven gold medals at the Para Swimming World Championships, completes the list of British nominations in the Sportsperson of the Year with a Disability category.

Laureus Academy member Boris Becker hailed the nomination of Murray, who battled back from career-threatening hip surgery to win the European Open in Belgium.

Becker said: "I never really expected to be making these comments about Andy, but it's great that I can.

"He seemed to be on the point of retiring but over the years his fighting spirit has always been one of his strongest assets and that was evident in 2019."

Rivalling Hamilton for the Sportsman of the Year award are Rafael Nadal, Lionel Messi, marathon record-breaker Eliud Kipchoge, Tiger Woods and MotoGP star Marc Marquez.

Simone Biles is targeting a third Sportswoman of the Year award against track and field stars Allyson Felix and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, footballer Megan Rapinoe, tennis star Naomi Osaka and skiing great Mikaela Shiffrin.
