BBC Sports Personality – Vardy Favourite After Fairy-Tale Season?

Leicester’s fairy-tale season has propelled star striker Jamie Vardy to the head of the betting for who will be crowned the 2016 Sports person of the year (5/2). Should his spectacular form continue for England this summer the William Hill predict that he could go odds on, despite this being an Olympic year.

“The Vardy story is a fantastic one and a good run in the European Championships would make him a certainty for this most prestigious of awards,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
