SPOTY: Good luck Ben

It's time to get all nostalgic about the best year of sport Britain has ever seen with the BBC's Sport Personality of the Year (hashtag #SPOTY), which could be Ben Ainslie (above).

We've just had a helicopter flyby of London by night, Emeli Sande, Olympics highlight clips and even Clare Balding.

Now meeting the contenders - so good luck Ben! When lines open, call 09015 2282-02 (landline) or 62282-02 (mobile) to vote for the greatest Olympic sailor ever.

To be honest not expecting much, but it will bring back lots of good memories from "the best summer ever".

Updated: the lines are closed and the votes have been counted. As expected Ben was in the second half of the SPOTY shortlist but still picked up 35,373 votes to come in 9th out 12, and was jolly close to being 8th.
