The now former All Blacks first-five Dan Carter has been shortlisted for the BBC's overseas sports personality of the year award.
The 33-year-old retired from international rugby after guiding the All Blacks to back to back world titles champion, kicking 19 points in the World Cup final against the Wallbies, including a late drop goal and penalty.
Carter recently won World Rugby's Player of the Year award.
The World Cup winner has some stiff competition though, he's up against a list of nominees that includes tennis world number ones Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams, Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt and two-time major winner golfer Jordan Spieth.
Carter arrived in France overnight to begin his stint with Top 14 club Racing 92 in Paris.
