England manager Gareth Southgate and his team were honoured at Sunday's Sports Personality of the Year show.

Southgate was named Coach of the Year for the second time after guiding his side to the Euro 2020 final as well as drawing praise from both inside and outside the game for his leadership qualities.

For the first time since 1966 England were named as Team of the Year, their defeat to Italy on penalties the only time they were on the losing side in 19 matches that also saw them secure a place at the 2022 World Cup.

Raheem Sterling, England's main man for much of the Euros, was also shortlisted for the main Sports Personality of the Year prize.
