Joe Wicks second-favourite to win SPOTY

The Body Coach could challenge Tyson Fury

Joe Wicks is second-favourite to be crowned this year’s Sports Personality of the Year.

The fitness coach has become an online sensation in recent weeks after leading the nation in P.E. classes on YouTube.

Wicks is priced at 8/1 to win the gong later this year, with boxer Tyson Fury the odds-on favourite at 8/11.

And Wicks could be rewarded after inspiring thousands of people to stay fit during lockdown.

“Joe Wicks has inspired the nation over the last few weeks to exercise in their own living room and we think he is in with a great chance of being named the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2020,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“Wicks is second best in our betting behind the world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who is the odds-on favourite at this early stage of the year.”

Wicks could be in line to be honoured by the Queen, with his odds at 2/1 to be on the 2021 New Year’s Honours List.

Meanwhile, our traders have him priced at 5/1 to enter the jungle for this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!
