LONDON (AP) — Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has been voted the BBC's 60th Sports Personality of the Year, winning the accolade after becoming the first British man to lift the trophy at the All England Club in 77 years.

The 26-year-old Scot ended one of the longest droughts in British sport by beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets in July.

Murray was presented with the BBC award on Sunday in Florida by 18-time grand slam singles champion Martina Navratilova as training commitments prevented him from traveling to the ceremony in the English city of Leeds.

Sometimes derided for a dour personality, Murray quipped: "No matter how excited I try to sound my voice still sounds incredibly boring. But I'm actually incredibly excited right now. That's just my voice. I'm sorry."
