Award for the Comeback Kid

Darren Clarke has been honoured with a prestigious international sporting award for his dramatic win at the Open Championship last year.

The Irish golfer was awarded the Laureus Sports comeback of the year award at a ceremony in London last night.

The 43-year-old won his first major at Royal St George’s in Kent in July 2011.

Rory McIlroy made it a double for Northern Ireland when he picked up the breakthrough of the year award for his win at the US Open in June 2011.

Sir Bobby Charlton won the Lifetime Achievement award but was unable to attend the event after falling ill on Sunday and undergoing minor surgery in Manchester.

His award was accepted on his behalf by Manchester United’s other sporting Knight, Sir Alex Fergusson.
