Andy Murray is a laugh ... honestly

By Jane Graham

Good to see that, after years of many South of Hadrian's wall maintaining an infantile and petty grudge, most folk have got over Andy Murray's joke about supporting 'anyone but England' (a jibe aimed at his pal Tim Henman and even if he hadn't been joking, what's wrong or new about tribalism in football anyway?) and agree that he was THE sporting star of 2013.

Any other result for Sports Personality of the Year would have been an embarrassing travesty on a par with that year Zara Phillips won. Great speech from the languid Murray too, telling the audience his flat, bored monotone disguised a state of great excitement. Funny guy.
