Gyan's contrasting fortunes at World Cup
Gyan's contrasting fortunes at World Cup
The Black Stars striker clinched1(扭住) the title with an overwhelming majority - receiving more than half of the vote.

He finished well ahead of fellow Ghanaian Andre 'Dede' Ayew, Ivorians Yaya Toure and Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o of Cameroon.

"I'm so happy, I can't believe it," he said. "I'm so thankful to all the fans who voted for me."

He added: "It was really hard to win this award, especially because of all the other players I was up against(面临,对抗) .

"So I'm so appreciative2 to all my fans in Africa - especially my family and fans in Ghana."

Gyan had a memorable3 year internationally, leading Ghana to second place at the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola, scoring three of the four goals that helped the Black Stars reach their first final in 18 years.

At the World Cup in South Africa, the 24-year-old grabbed the world's attention as another three goals helped them progress from the group and into the quarter-finals.

But he shot to prominence4 through unfortunate circumstances as his missed penalty against Uruguay with the last kick of the game denied Africa its first semi-final berth5.

He then earned widespread praise and went some way to redeeming6(履行,挽回) his error when he recovered his composure(镇静,沉着) to score in the shoot-out following a 1-1 draw.

Despite the disappointment of the World Cup exit, the finals boosted his career as he left French side Rennes to become Sunderland's record signing at £13m.

"Asamoah has been a fantastic addition to the Sunderland squad," said Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, who presented Gyan with the African Footballer of the Year trophy7.

"As our record signing, he had a lot of expectation placed on his shoulders but he has embraced the club wholeheartedly and has settled in very well.

"He's a strong, quick player and brings something different to the side.

"He has formed positive partnerships8 with other strikers and he's a real bright spark around the place too - always smiling and happy.

"He has an infectious joy for football, and we are reaping the rewards of that.

"I'm thrilled for Asamoah that he has been awarded this honour, it is thoroughly9 deserved."

The search for BBC African Footballer of the Year 2010 began on 15 November when fans were given the chance to choose their African football hero from a shortlist selected by experts from each of the continent's 52 countries.

Public voting closed on 10 December 2010 - with votes cast online at bbc.com/africanfootball or via text messages.
