Marcus Rashford doesn't need the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year award, but their award needs him. They've made a terrible mistake in omitting him from the shortlist.

The announcement that they'll be giving the Manchester United striker his own special award on December 20 doesn't change that. You know what would be a really special award? Sports Personality of the Year so he could follow in the footsteps of Moore, Botham, Coe and Christie and in years to come people could look back and see that this was what greatness looked like in 2020.
