At the SI Awards on Tuesday night, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady accepted the 2021 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year award. Brady was presented the award by longtime teammate Rob Gronkowski. 

"As as kid I was a big Sports Illustrated fan," Brady said in his acceptance speech. "I would tear off every cover that came to the house and I would use it as the wallpaper in my room."

Brady is just the third person to win the award more than once. He won in 2005 when coming off his third Super Bowl title, and now joins Tiger Woods (1996 and 2000) and LeBron James (2012, 2016 and 2020) as the only multiple-time winners.
