Spaniard Pau Gasol has been voted European player of the year for 2009, winning the award for the second year in a row, the governing body FIBA Europe said on Monday.

The 2.15-metre centre won an NBA championship title with the Los Angeles Lakers and followed that up by helping Spain to win their first European championship gold medal in Poland in September.

Gasol came in ahead of Germany's Dirk Nowitzki and Serbia's Milos Teodosic in the voting by fans and a panel of experts.
