Men's tennis number one Rafael Nadal has won the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award.

The 24-year-old Spaniard won a remarkable three Grand Slams in 2010 - the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, as well three Masters titles.
In winning the US Open, Nadal became only the seventh man in history to complete the set of majors.
"For me it's an honour, thank you very much to the BBC for giving me this award," said Nadal.
"It's just a dream being in the list of great champions to receive this award."
