Cape Town - He captured the hearts of millions, not least England striker Jermain Defoe, with his infectious positivity and brave smile and today, Bradley Lowery has posthumously been announced as receiving the most votes in October’s Laureus Best Sporting Moment of the Year public vote.

Bradley’s Moment is now a nominee for the overall Best Sporting Moment of the Year at the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards.

Each month, from August to December, the public can select their favourite "Moment" from a shortlist of six videos, chosen by the sporting legends of the Laureus World Sports Academy.

The five monthly winners will then go head-to-head in a final public vote, with the winner being announced at the 2018 Laureus Awards Ceremony.

Bradley’s moment now joins Kimi Räikkönen and his six-year-old fan Thomas Danel and inspirational 18-year-old motor racing driver Billy Monger as the first three nominees for the 2018 Laureus Awards.

The Laureus Best Sporting Moment Award demonstrates qualities such as fair play, sportsmanship, drama and dedication, and looks beyond the scoreboard or podium. The Moments symbolise the true values of sport and bring to life the message that sport has the power to change the world.
