The BBC Sport website has won a Bafta interactive award for the coverage of England's exit from Euro 2004.

The award was given for the best single news item or sports report delivered using digital media.

The package included reports, reaction, features, audio/video material, Virtual Replay and messageboards.

Virtual Replay was commended for being "ground-breaking use of animation allowing users to view crucial goals from any angle or speed".

The other contenders for the prize were the BBC's Newsround site for their coverage of the Beslan school siege and three websites from The Guardian - covering Euro 2004, the Tour de France and the US presidential election.

Virtual Replay was a joint project between BBC Sport, BBC Manchester Interactive and LifelnMedia, an independent software development company.

Ben Gallop, editor of BBC Sport Interactive, said: "It's hugely gratifying to be recognised by the Academy for our Euro 2004 coverage, which was the result of a massive team effort.

"All our thanks go to the hardest-working team in the BBC and also to our colleagues in LifeInMedia for building the fantastic Virtual Replay application."

BBC Sport's interactive Olympics coverage missed out on an award in the Interactive TV section - with the prize going to the BBC's Spooks Interactive.
