Gymnast Edward Upcott won the Sports Personality of the Year award at the 2010 Surrey Sports Awards.

The 18-year-old was recognised for his achievements after he won gold in the men's pairs event at the World Acrobatic Gymnastic Championship in Poland in July.

He told BBC Surrey: "It's great to be recognised by my borough for my sporting achievements.

Upcott is also member of Spelbound, who won television show Britain's Got Talent earlier this year.

The Coach of the Year award went to Jon Escott, of Swifts Junior Badminton Club in Lightwater.

"I spend time with children from six to 18-years-old from beginners up to national players," Escott said.

"We inspire the national players to help the beginners and 11 have become coaches in the past year, which is fantastic news."
