Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic has won the BBC's Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award for 2001.
Ivanisevic picked up the first award to be presented in the annual Sports Review of the Year programme.

A former Wimbledon champion, Boris Becker, presented the award as Britain's Tim Henman looked on.
Henman lost to the Croat in the 2001 semi-final at the All England Club - and he was interviewed along with the two men who have both won the title he values most.

Becker, however, had reassuring words for the Englishman, telling Henman he had a "funny feeling" that he would win Wimbledon at some stage during his career.
Ivanisevic also said Henman had time on his side because he was still a relatively young player.

The current Wimbledon champ, on receiving his award, said: "I would like to thank the BBC for this unbelievable award.


"I am proud and honoured to be here tonight with all these great sportspeople."
