Our very own Jimmy Magee was honoured at an event in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday night alongside the likes of Alessandro del Piero and Yao Ming.

The elite in sport journalism were awarded for their work at a glittering ceremony in the UAE capital on Tuesday night as the Sport Media Pearl Awards, attended by Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Social Development, capped off a six-month journey to find the best in sport media.

The evening at the Etihad Towers complex in Abu Dhabi welcomed a host of notable faces from the world of sport as Italian footballer Alessandro Del Piero joined NBA star Yao Ming and Olympic Gold Medallist Jonathan Edwards.

And our own Jimmy Magee was honoured this year for his career with the prestigious Life in Sport' award.

You can see him accepting the honour from Jonathan Edwards in the video below.

Well deserved Jimmy!
