Benedict Cumberbatch to host 2018 Laureus Awards

MONACO, January 24, 2018 – Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch is to host the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco on February 27.

The 2018 Awards in Monaco will be the third time Benedict has hosted the prestigious Laureus World Sports Awards, having previously hosted the 2014 Awards in Kuala Lumpur and the 2015 Ceremony in Shanghai.

The globally-recognised actor has appeared in a series of highly respected film and TV dramas in recent years, including his famous role as Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock, playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game as well as a role in Academy Award-winning 12 Years a Slave. Benedict is also acclaimed for 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.

The 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards will celebrate sporting success and achievement over the past calendar year, while also recognising the true value sport can have in uniting communities and acting as a positive force for change.

“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. 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!”
– Benedict Cumberbatch
