The racing driver, 36, listed the property for $57 million (£42.90 million) in February 2019, before dropping his price for a mystery buyer who went incognito through a Seattle shell company, as stated in property records.

According to the listing, the penthouse is ‘the crown jewel of the building, an enclave of exclusivity in the heart of Northwest Tribeca’.

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.
