Dina Asher-Smith and Jofra Archer win major prizes at British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards

Sprinter Dina Asher-Smith and England bowler Jofra Archer have won big at the British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards.

Asher-Smith picked up the British Army Sportswoman award while Archer won the Sporting Equals Sportsman of the Year Award.

Asher-Smith picked up the gong after winning a gold in the 200m and a silver in the 100m at the Doha World Championships last October.

While Archer was a part of England's World Cup winning side last summer.

Archer said: "I'm so honoured to have been awarded Sporting Equals Sportsman of the Year, with the World Cup victory in cricket I feel equality and diversity in sport is the only way forward. 

"The work Sporting Equals has done and continues to do for diversity and equality is truly amazing, a great organisation and I'm really grateful to be part of that legacy."
