Cristiano Ronaldo Wins Ballon D’Or For The Fifth Time
Cristiano Ronaldo has won his fifth Ballon d’Or trophy. The Real Madrid forward pipped the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar to the prestigious honour after leading Los Blancos to European and La Liga glory last season.
Ronaldo now joins Messi in winning the trophy five times, with the pair dominating the award for the last decade.
The 32-year-old had already scooped FIFA’s ‘The Best’ award earlier this season as his triumphant 2016-17 campaign was recognised.
