England captain Harry Kane 4/6 favourite to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year

Harry Kane continues to play a starring role for England at this summer’s World Cup, and bookmaker Coral believes the striker’s efforts in Russia have made him the leading candidate to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award later this year.


Kane came into the World Cup in outstanding form for both club and country, but unlike previous years where some of England’s star men have flopped on the big stage, the 24-year-old Tottenham Hotspur forward has led by example.

His second-half penalty against Colombia took his World Cup tally to six goals – sending him two clear of nearest rival Romelu Lukaku in the scoring charts – and he is now the clear favourite to win the Golden Boot at 1/4.

Coral believes that is not the only accolade that Kane will receive for his exploits in Russia, with the bookmaker pricing him up as the 4/6 favourite to be named the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2018, putting him ahead of world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua.

“Footballers have a great tradition of winning SPOTY, and the last time England made the semi-finals in 1990, it was Paul Gascoigne who scooped the award,” Coral PR executive Harry Aitkenhead told Bettingpro.com.

“Should Harry Kane go on to win the Golden Boot and England repeat their last success it would be a certainty for Kane to win the award in December, and we make it odds-on in anticipation already.”
