The British film and television star has been chosen to host the 2014 Laureus World Sports Awards at Istana Budaya on March 26.
Cumberbatch, who has appeared in a series of highly-successful films said he was delighted to host such a prestigious event.
“I have seen the names of all the great sportsmen and women who have been nominated for the Laureus Awards this year, and although I played a great detective in Sherlock, I have to confess I have no idea who is going to win.
