Wimbledon champ Murray takes BBC award, sorry for voice

Andy Murray, the first British man in 77 years to win Wimbledon, claimed the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award on Sunday and then apologised if he sounded bored. Murray, 26, had defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets in July's Wimbledon championship match for his second career Grand Slam title. The Scot had won the US Open in 2012 as well as the Olympic title.

In Sunday's awards, he beat British and Irish Lions rugby union player Leigh Halfpenny who finished second and horse-racing jockey AP McCoy who was third. Murray received the trophy from tennis legend Martina Navratilova at his training base in Miami. "No matter how excited I try to sound my voice always sounds boring - that's just my voice, I'm sorry! I'm very excited right now! Thank you very much everyone," said an emotional Murray.
