Jade Jones takes BBC personality award

The BBC website is reporting tonight (Monday) that Taekwondo star Jade Jones has been named as the BBC Cymru Wales Sports Personality of the Year 2012.

The 19-year-old from Flint in north Wales won the public vote, with rugby union back-row Dan Lydiate in second place and cyclist Geraint Thomas third.

Jones battled through to win gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games, taking the women's -57kg title.

"It's like a great honour I can't believe I have won," said Jones.

"There were so many great people I was up against and just the fact that the public got to vote, so it's such a great honour that people recognised what I have done."
