After receiving the accolade, she said, "Sorry, I'm speechless for once! Obviously, I'm incredibly honoured to win this award. I'll keep saying it, it's a cliché but I wouldn't have done it without them, girls, over there, the team that backed me".

"Most of all this is for women's sports and for women's sports heading in the right direction. Let's keep pushing girls and let's keep doing the right thing," Mead added.

The Lionesses also took home awards for Team of the Year and Coach of the Year, Sarina Wiegman who led England's women to their first major title.
