Basketball superstar LeBron James has been named the Associated Press' 2013 Male Athlete of the Year.

He became the third basketball player to capture the award that has been annually awarded since 1931.

James got 31 of the 96 votes cast in a poll of news organisations.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who was named Sports Illustrated's sportsman of the year earlier this month, was second with 20 votes, followed by NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson with seven.

James won the NBA most valuable player award and led the Miami Heat to the league title in 2013.
