    The Hertfordshire native won’t be homeless in New York, since he also owns another bachelor penthouse at nearby Vestry St, which he splashed $40.7 million (£30.64 million) on back in 2017.

    It comes after the BBC said it will not announce its shortlist for Sports Personality Of The Year until next week — boosting Lewis’s chances of winning the award for a third time.

    Nominees are usually named in the last week of November or first week in December but Sportsmail understands candidates will be revealed in the week of the live show in Salford on December 19.

    The final F1 race will take place on Sunday in Abu Dhabi, with Lewis level on points with Red Bull rival Max Verstappen.

    He was crowned SPOTY last year and in 2014. He will be a leading contender if he wins a record eighth world title to surpass Michael Schumacher. 

    For the exclusive occupants of the building, there's a 70-foot indoor swimming pool, a fitness center and Turkish bath, a 5,000-square-foot landscaped roof terrace and lush central courtyard.

    Emma Raducanu is odds-on bookies’ favourite to become the first female winner of SPOTY since equestrian rider Zara Phillips in 2006 after her victory at the US Open aged 18.

    The shortlist had been limited to six candidates in the last three years but the BBC will expand it, as they have done previously in Olympic years. After London 2012, they named a shortlist of 12 and after Rio 2016, there were 16 nominees.

    Tom Daley, Adam Peaty, Jason Kenny and Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey are likely to be included after golds in Tokyo.
