Liverpool striker Divock Origi wins prized Belgian award

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has won Belgium's Promising Talent of the Year award for 2014.

Origi was signed by Liverpool in the summer before being loaned back to Lille this season.

The Belgian Sportsman of the Year is announced each December and has been awarded since 1967. This year, Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois became the first footballer to scoop the main prize.

The Promising Talent of the Year award was added to the honours list in 1998, when tennis star Kim Clijsters picked up the inaugural award. In 2009, Romelu Lukaku, now an Everton player, picked up the honour.
