Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch is to host the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco on February 27, the third time he has hosted the Awards. The ’Sherlock’ star previously led the 2014 Awards in Kuala Lumpur and the 2015 ceremony in Shanghai.

His role playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, his performance as Julian Assange in the Wikileaks movie The Fifth Estate and as the Dragon Smaug, in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, have established Cumberbatch as one of the world’s most sought-after performers.

“As an actor, I am asked to play a variety of characters, from legendary detective, a master of the mystic arts or an enigma code-breaking genius. None of those characters though have helped me discover who the winners will be at this year’s Laureus Awards,” said Cumberbatch.

“All of the nominations are fantastic and, along with a stunning Monaco location, home of the Formula One Grand Prix, I know it’s going to be a very special night. Join us!”

The Laureus World Sports Awards will celebrate sporting success and achievement over the past calendar year.
