Seven-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton, female jockey Hollie Doyle and Premier League champion Liverpool were the main winners at Britain’s Sports Journalists Association awards Thursday.

The ceremony was conducted virtually, instead of the usual gala event, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hamilton was named Sportsman of the Year after becoming the most successful Formula One driver of all time in a record-breaking season in which he equalled Ferrari great Michael Schumacher’s seven titles.

Lewis Hamilton said he was in dreamland Sunday after powering to victory in the Portuguese Grand Prix to become Formula One's record all-time race winner.

The Mercedes driver, who also won the award in his debut 2007 season with McLaren, is competing in the year’s final race in Abu Dhabi this weekend after recovering from the new coronavirus.

Doyle was Sportswoman of the Year after becoming the first female jockey to win five races on one card at Windsor in August.

Liverpool were Team of the Year.
