Who’s been our country’s best sporting star in 2017? It’s a difficult one as British sports fans have seen plenty of triumphs, but now it’s time for viewers to vote on their choices as the nominees gather for the Sports Personality of the Year ceremony in Liverpool.

Among the favourites are Mo Farah, who retired from the track after winning the world 10000m athletics title in London, swimmer Adam Peaty, who smashed world records in the pool to become 50m and 100m breaststoke World Champion again, Lewis Hamilton, who won the F1 title, and tennis star Johanna Konta, who made it to the Wimbledon semi-final.

The extravaganza is presented once again by Clare Balding, Gary Lineker and Gabby Logan.
