Christine Mboma hopes to win more medals and inspire others across the continent after finally getting her hands on the BBC African Sports Personality of the Year award for 2021.

The 18-year-old was presented with the trophy, which she won in January following a public vote, ahead of the Kip Keino Classic meeting in Nairobi at the weekend.
