Russell sang The Impossible Dream as Sir Alex Ferguson was presented with a Sports Personality of The Year' Diamond Award'.
It was a bit disappointing though that he was only seen briefly before the cameras focussed on Sir Alex,but he did sound great as always.

The pictures on the links below are from the Press Assoc.

and also one where Russell is singing Nessun Dorma at some point during the show.Just a pity they never showed him singing on the TV.

I cannot understand why Russell was not heard in full. However my favourite sports presenter Clare Balding was there, so all was not lost. Russell would have enjoyed the rest of the Awards, such a wonderful night.

BBC did not do very well by Russell last night on SPOTY,at least on the part shown on TV! I thought that they could have given him a little more camara footage whilst he was singing,never mind I am sure that Russell enjoyed being with one of his heroes!!

You're right Doreen and it's not the first time as it was the same the other week when he performed the national anthems at Old Trafford! frown I realise the focus was on Sir Alex at the SPOTY but even so, Russell could have been given a bit more prominence. Shame too as has been mentioned that his rendition of Nessun Dorma, so appreciated by the audience, didn't even feature.

I think Russell would have been chuffed to bits to be singing in a tribute to Sir Alex,no matter how little he was shown on TV.
It was all top secret,there was an embargo on and no photo's etc were allowed before his performance except the ones that he put on Twitter & Facebook.

I am told that in the earlier part of the evening Russell sang Volare as well as Nessun Dorma,none of which was televised but if you were watching the 'Red Carpet' via the Red button on BBC you may have spied Russell on a screen singing while guests were being interviewed as they arrived.
