England and Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been honoured for his work to raise awareness of child food poverty in the UK.
He will be given a special award at the BBC Sports Personality show next month.
Rashford, 23, has also been named on the annual Football Black List, which recognises black figures in the game.
The BBC will show a documentary on the striker who successfully campaigned for the government to extend free school meals during the Covid-19 pandemic.
He will be presented with the Panel Special Award at this year’s BBC Sports Personality show on 20 December, which comes from Media City in Salford and will be shown live on BBC One. (BBC)
