Has he got room for any more trophies?!

Andy Murray has been voted the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2016!

It’s a record-breaking third time that Andy has won the prize!

It caps off a pretty incredible year for Andy which has finished with him being the world number 1 tennis player, knocking Novak Djokovic off the top spot!

He also took home gold at the Rio Olympics and claimed his second Wimbledon title!

Oh, and as if he wasn’t busy enough, back in Feburary his wife Kim gave birth to their baby daughter Sophia!

Andy couldn’t be at the ceremony at Birmingham’s Genting Arena because he’s out in Florida getting ready for the 2017 season.

Instead, he accepted the award via video-link and thanked everyone who voted.

The BBC Sports Personality of the Year is awarded every year and voted for by the public!

Andy received 247,419 votes with triathlete Alistair Brownlee in second place with 121,665 votes.
