Merry Christmas to all readers

  • Last Updated: December 24 2013, 15:23 GMT

All at would like to wish our readers a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.

As ever, our aim over the last 12 months has been to provide you with the best sporting news, features and live coverage.

I sincerely hope that we have fulfilled that brief.

From Treve's stunning Arc victory, Aurora Encore's surprise Grand National success to Mo Farah's double gold at the World Championship, Justin Rose's US Open and memorably Andy Murray's Wimbledon triumph, we've been across it all.

The remarkable Tony McCoy's 4,000th winner was met with jubilation whilst the Ashes battle between England and Australia has swung back and forth in dramatic fashion.

There are so many other events that I could mention, but what it all adds up to is yet another wonderful year for sport.

So thank you for all your support, and thanks too to all who have contributed to the site in 2013.

We always value your feedback so if you have any thoughts on please email them through to

Finally I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas - and we'll be back on Boxing Day for another bumper sporting afternoon.
