A good sport is someone who accepts in good spirit or good humour, being beaten at something: someone who loses gracefully.

A good sport can also be someone who does not mind being laughed at when a joke or trick is played on them: someone who has a good sense of humour.

Examples of use:

a) She was very disappointed she didn’t win the race, but she was a good sport about it.

b) He never complains when he loses a tennis match – he’s such a good sport.

c) We are always playing tricks on our dad. We’re lucky he’s a good sport!
