Superstar Beyonce was a surprise presenter at the The 2017 Sportsperson of the Year Awards took place Tuesday night. She turned up to give the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The singer said that she felt “so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation” and thanked Kaepernick for his “selfless heart,” “conviction” and “personal sacrifice.” The football player became a catalyst for conversation when he began kneeling during the National Anthem before games to protest police brutality and racial inequality. Kaepernick accepted the award saying "With or without the NFL's platform I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people."
