“To win this award truly is an incredible honour and one which I am very proud to receive,” he said.
“Even to be nominated for a second time was more than I could have hoped for, especially given the world class goalkeepers involved.”
Juan Vivaldi (Argentina) Jaap Stockmann (Netherlands), Vincent Vanasch (Belgium) and Parattu Raveendran Sreejesh (India) were nominated for the award, with Vivaldi and Vanasch winning gold and silver respectively at the Rio Games.
“Although it is an individual award, it partly belongs to my teams at both club & country level as I would not have made it here without them,”
