Colin Kaepernick has another accolade. Beyonce made a surprise visit Tuesday night to the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards to give the former San Francisco 49er the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah introduced Beyonce and said Kaepernick's decision to protest police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem sparked a national conversation about race. He also noted that Kaepernick has faced consequences from his actions.
Past winners of the award include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson.
