And he hit a breath-taking Ashes innings at Headingly – knocking an awe-inspiring 135 not out to keep England’s hopes alive.

Stokes, 28, was the firm favourite to win the award.

Bookies had his odds at 1-10

Second place went to Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton – seen by some as the sport’s greatest ever driver – has just taken his sixth world championship.

Third place went to sprinter Dina Asher-Smith, the fastest British woman in recorded history.

She is the current World Champion at 200 metres.
