The Island has been presented with a prestigious award for its work in sport.

The Isle of Man is the European Community of Sport for 2012.

It was announced earlier this year that the Island was to hold the honour, and Community, Culture and Leisure Minister Tim Crookall recently picked up the award at the European Parliament building in Brussels.

The award recognises the Island's work in managing and developing sport.

Mr Crookall says the rise of cycling star Mark Cavendish is testament to sports development on the Island [play clip]
