2017 Ballon d’Or: Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has taken home the Ballon d’Or, the most prestigious award, for the fifth time.

The Portuguese superstar was voted the best player in the world once again - edging out Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Ronaldo won his first prize in 2008 before successes in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

He received the award at a glitzy ceremony up the Eiffel Tower on Thursday evening.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was the highest-placed Premier League player as he came in 10th.
