Jenson Button followed in Lewis Hamilton's footsteps to win the Formula One world championship but will be hoping to avoid matching his fellow Briton's fate when it comes to the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year. Button is the overwhelming favourite among the shortlist of 10 announced last night – as was Hamilton a year ago, only for Sir Chris Hoy to spring one of the biggest surprises in the event's 55-year history.

For Jessica Ennis, the homecoming parade continues. At Gateshead yesterday it was a run-out against some of the best in the world in the 100 metres hurdles in the British Grand Prix. Today it will be a civic reception in Sheffield for the 23-year-old who struck World Championship gold over the seven events of the heptathlon in Berlin two weeks ago.

The prospects of the champagne corks popping Oval-style at the London Olympic Stadium in celebration of home track and field medals in 2012 are looking significantly brighter following the most successful World Championships for Great Britain since the golden days of Linford Christie, Colin Jackson and Sally Gunnell in Stuttgart back in 1993. Right from the off, when Jessica Ennis won the first race on the blue Olympiastadion track, the opening heat of the 100m hurdles in the heptathlon, it was a Britannic tale of rising to the global occasion in Berlin.
