    Sports Personality: Andy Murray eyes 'exciting' 2016 after winning award
    Andy Murray is looking forward to an "exciting" 2016 after being crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year for a second time.

    The Scot was a clear winner after he led Great Britain to their first Davis Cup team tennis triumph for 79 years.

    Next year Murray, 28, who is set to become a father, will attempt to defend his Olympic title and seek a third Grand Slam triumph.

    "The scheduling will be difficult next year but it's exciting," he said.

    Murray became only the fourth person to win the BBC award twice - following boxer Henry Cooper and F1 drivers Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill - after first winning in 2013.

    He finished a clear first in the public vote, with rugby league veteran Kevin Sinfield second and heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill narrowly beating boxer Tyson Fury to third place.
