BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards 2012 was a star-studded ceremony in London on Sunday. Prince William's pregnant wife, Duchess Catherine, presented Tour de France winner and Olympic time-trial champion Bradley Wiggins with his award at the ExCel Centre.

This is Kate Middleton's first public appearance since she was hospitalised for severe morning sickness about two weeks ago due to pregnancy.

The ceremony capped a memorable year for sport in Great Britain, which was recognised when the country's Olympic and Paralympic squad - who between them won 185 medals during the London Games - were named Team of the Year.

The Duchess of Cambridge also handed a lifetime achievement award to two-time Olympic champion athlete Sebastian Coe, 56, who spearheaded London's successful bid for the Games and then chaired the organising committee.
