LONDON, FEB 24 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 2/24/2021 1:26:49 PM IST

 Lewis Hamilton and Liverpool are among the nominees for the 2021 Laureus World Sport Awards.

Briton Hamilton is up for the Sportsman of the Year award, having won a seventh Formula 1 drivers’ crown in 2020.

Liverpool won their first league title since 1990 last year and, along with Champions League winners Bayern Munich, are on the team of the year shortlist.

Japan’s Naomi Osaka, who recently won the Australian Open, is on the Sportswoman of the Year shortlist.

Hamilton was the joint winner, along with Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi, of the men’s award last year when the continuing global coronavirus pandemic started.

“It’s hard to believe just how much has changed - 2020 was a difficult year for so many people, for many different reasons and of course the world of sport was hugely affected,” said Mercedes driver Hamilton.

“I was fortunate enough to be able to race and I’m so proud of what we, as a team, were able to achieve together.”

This year’s winners will be announced in May as part of a virtual event.
