McCoy honoured with lifetime award at SPOTY show

Twenty-time champion jump jockey AP McCoy was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year show on Sunday.
The 41-year-old Northern Irishman, who retired in April after a record-breaking career, was honoured at a star-studded ceremony in Belfast.
McCoy was the first jockey to be crowned Sports Personality of the Year back in 2010 after finally winning the Grand National at the 15th attempt on Don’t Push It.
He was champion jockey every year of a professional career that saw him ride more than 4,300 winners and in doing so overcome a succession of injuries, including puncturing his lungs twice.
As well as his Grand National success, McCoy won the Cheltenham Gold Cup twice, three Champion Hurdles and the Champion Chase.
