Castletown resident Jonathan Rea is on the shortlist for this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

The 30-year-old made history earlier this year, securing a third straight World Superbike title.

In a post on his website, Rea said he's very excited to be included among the 12 nominees, describing it as the icing on the cake after a great year.

World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua is the favourite to win the award with the bookmakers.
