Former British Lions hooker Brian Moore has won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award for 2010.

Moore collected the prize this lunchtime for his life story, entitled "Beware of the Dog: Rugby\'s Hardman Reveals All".

In the book, Moore talks not only of his glittering career, but also of the sexual abuse he suffered as a child.

Co-founder of the prize Graham Sharpe said: "It\'s a uniquely engaging book and a fascinating exploration of what lies beneath the tough exterior of one of England\'s greatest rugby players."

As well as a £22,000 cheque, Moore also receives a £2,000 William Hill bet, a hand-bound copy of his book, and a day at the races.
