The seven-time world champion wasn’t available to receive his award at the prestigious event. Hence, he took to Twitter to show how grateful he is for receiving such a famed honor.
He said, “Thank you to the ESPYS, and to all the fans for this incredible award. I have currently not had the pleasure of going to one of these amazing awards that the ESPYS do, but I am really so appreciative of all the amazing support that the ESPYS has given me over the years.
“And, I really just want to send lots of love and positivity, and to all the young athletes out there doing incredible things – continue to strive for greatness, continue pushing. Never give up, there really isn’t a thing we can’t do if we put our minds to it. And, also if we come together, so during this time, stay positive and God bless,” Hamilton concluded.
Hopefully after the humiliation of the previous five grand prix, Hamilton could rise once again to impress the crowd at Silverstone by reducing the deficit for himself and his team in respective standings.
