Peyton Manning was bestowed with the honour of being anointed the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year at the weekend, while this award has since been followed by a somewhat less distinguished accolade.
The Denver Broncos quarterback followed in the footsteps of many greats before him, including the likes of Tom Brady and LeBron James, by earning the title although Manning has now been able to get one over on his illustrious counterparts.
To celebrate Manning's achievement, Sports Illustrated commissioned a Christmas song in tribute to the NFL legend penned and performed by funk icon Bootsy Collins. Not even Brady and LeBron can say they've had one of those.
