Djokovic & Biles

The 'Oscars of Sport' honor the greatest and most inspirational athletes from the last calendar year.

On a glamorous night in Monaco, Djokovic was announced as the World Sportsman of the Year -- fending off competition from World Cup star Kylian Mbappe and marathon man Eliud Kipchoge.

The Serbian tennis ace won Wimbledon and the US Open last year and has now joined Olympic legend Usain Bolt as a four-time winner of the Laureus accolade.

'Last year was an incredible season for me, returning from injury to win Wimbledon and the US Open is something I'll remember forever,' Djokovic said after receiving his award.

Despite being overlooked for the Sportsman of the Year award, Kipchoge was handed the Exceptional Achievement Award for his record breaking marathon success.

Meanwhile, US gymnast Biles was named World Sportswoman of the Year after her record breaking performance at the world championships last year.

The 21-year-old, winner of the same Laureus award in 2017, won four gold, one silver and one bronze medal in Doha, Qatar.

Tennis star Naomi Osaka went home with the World Breakthrough of the Year Award, while golf legend Tiger Woods won the World Comeback of the Year Award.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger received the Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to football. The Frenchman managed the Gunners for 22 years, famously going an entire English Premier League season unbeaten.
