Sports News: Award for Redgrave

Five-time Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave will receive the lifetime achievement award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year on Thursday night.

Already established as the most outstanding rower of all time after his victory in Atlanta in 1996, Redgrave announced the following year that he would carry on competing through to the Games in Sydney in 2000, where he won a fifth consecutive gold.

Since retiring from competitive sport, his Steve Redgrave Fund has raised more than £6million for charity, and he played a key role in helping London win the bid to host the Olympics in 2012.
