FOOTBALL: Pires wins the writers' prize.
Pires won by just five votes from Ruud van Nistelrooy in a record poll, with David Beckham finishing a close third. He said: "It is a great honour. Times have been difficult with my injury, but this has given me something to smile about."
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "We're absolutely delighted. There is a fantastic spirit here and Robert is at the heart of it."
