Tennis star, Paralympic gold medallist and advocate Dylan Alcott has made history after being named 2022 Australian of the Year.

He is the first person with a disability to claim the award in its 62-year history.

Mr Alcott is revered for his efforts on and off the court, and is a powerful advocate for Australians living with a disability.

The tennis golden grand slam winner┬ásays he thought he had “no chance” at winning the honour, and he feels like “luckiest guy in this country”.

Dylan told Ben Fordham the Australian public played a huge part in his success.

“This is a team effort mate, this isn’t ‘me’, this is ‘we’.

“I’m just going to keep being me.

“I’m excited to be able to amplify the voices of other people with a disability.”
