CRISTIANO RONALDO WINS BEST PLAYER OF THE YEAR
The Real Madrid and Portugal superstar was against Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar for the award he won last year.
The ceremony, which took place at the London Palladium, is the second since the Fifa award once again split from France Football’s Ballon d’Or prize.
Ronaldo has scored 44 goals for club and country so far in 2017 and scored twice in the Champions League final in June as Real won the competition for a record-extending 12th time.
The winners are decided by a jury of club and international coaches, media representatives and fans.
