The winners of these prestigious awards and nearly 20 others will be revealed tonight, when the Sports Journalists’ Association stages the British Sports Journalism Awards for the 38th time, sponsored¬† by BT Sport and supported by Laureus and Ladbrokes.

Hosted by John Inverdale and Sybil Ruscoe at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, the event gets under way with a reception and exhibition of the short-listed photography entries, with nearly 400 guests from the media, sport, show business and politics expected for dinner.

The full list of winners and highly commended entries will be published online on this website tonight from around 10.45pm.
