Sachin Tendulkar honored with Best Sporting Moment Award in Laureus World Sports Awards
Batting great Sachin Tendulkar being carried on the shoulders of his team-mates after India’s World Cup triumph at home in 2011 was voted the Laureus best sporting moment in the last 20 years.
With the backing of Indian cricket fans, Tendulkar got the maximum number of votes to emerge winner on Monday.
Former Australian skipper Steve Waugh handed the trophy to Tendulkar after tennis legend Boris Becker announced the winner at a glittering ceremony.
“It’s incredible. The feeling of winning the World Cup was beyond what words can express. How many times you get an event happening where there are no mixed opinions. Very rarely the entire country celebrates,” Tendulkar said after receiving the trophy. Tendulkar, competing in his sixth and last World Cup, finally realised his long-cherished dream when skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni smacked Sri Lankan pacer Nuwan Kulasekara out of the park for a winning six.
The charged-up Indian cricketers rushed to the ground at the Wankhede Stadium and lifted Tendulkar on their shoulders for a lap of honor, a moment etched in the minds of the fans.
Tendulkar put in perspective how important it was for him to hold that trophy when Becker asked him to share the emotions he felt at that time.
“My journey started in 1983 when I was 10 years old. India had won the World Cup. I did not understand the significance and just because everybody was celebrating, I also joined the party,” he said.
“But I knew something special had happened to the country and I wanted to experience it one day and that’s how my journey began.
“It was the proudest moment of my life, holding that trophy which I chased for 22 years… I never lost hope. I was merely lifting that trophy on behalf of my countrymen.”
The 46-year-old Tendulkar, the highest run-getter in the world, said holding the Laureus trophy has also given him great honour.
He also talked about the impact the revolutionary South African leader Nelson Mandela had on him. Tendulkar met him when he was just 19 years old. “The hardship that he faced did not affect his leadership. Out of the many messages he left, the most important I felt was that sport has got the power to unite everyone. Messi, Hamilton jointly crowned Laureus sportsman of the year

The Argentinian forward and British Mercedes driver won the same number of votes from fans worldwide sharing the men's award for the first time in the event's 20-year history. Messi, a six-time Ballon d'Or winner, became the first football player to get the award after steering Barcelona to its 26th Spanish league title, while Hamilton won his sixth Formula One championship in 2019. The Laureus World Sports Awards are the only worldwide awards event to recognize the best athletes of the past year in various categories.
Simone Biles, 22, who became the most decorated gymnast in world championship history when she won her 25th medal last year, won her third Sportswoman of the Year gong after previously winning the award in 2017 and 2019.
The South African rugby team, which won the World Cup in Japan last year for the third time in history, were crowned Team of the Year, beating European football champions Liverpool and women's football World Cup winners the United States. Former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar, the highest scorer of all time in international cricket, had the support of a cricket-crazy nation to win a fan vote for the award for the Best Sporting Moment from the last two decades.
In 2011, in his sixth and final World Cup appearance, Tendulkar led India to its first win on home soil and second overall. A host of sporting greats were honored for their achievements at the annual Laureus World Sports Awards, held in Berlin on Monday night, and Sportsmail's photographer Andy Hooper was allowed exclusive behind the scenes access to capture the glitzy ceremony in all of its glory.

This is the first time a footballer has won the award and also the first occasion in the event's 20-year history when the jury reached a tied decision. Hamilton who did attend the event was presented with his award by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
The Brit acknowledged the responsibility of the world's top sports stars to push for greater diversity
'Our sport has very little to no diversity - it's an issue we're continually facing,' he said.
'It is all our responsibility to use our platforms for that: really pushing for gender equality, inclusivity, really making sure we are engaging and representing where the world is today.'
The Mercedes driver also vowed to continue to take a lead in the fight against climate change.
Hamilton sold his £25million private jet last year and has stated his desire to become carbon-neutral despite accusations of hypocrisy as he successfully pursued a sixth world drivers' title.
'I'm very conscious of the effect we're all having on the environment which is such a key issue today,' he added.
'I'm beginning to make changes and trying to be part of the solution rather than the problem, and try to encourage other people to follow in my footsteps to build a better world.
'We're in a really difficult and challenging time where we're putting our future and our children's futures at risk because of what we're doing to the environment.'
Hamilton will match Michael Schumacher's record of seven world titles if he retains his crown in the new Formula One season which begins in Australia next month.
