Real Madrid and Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo on Thursday night pipped Barcelona’s talisman Lionel Messi to win the 2017 Ballon d’Or.

The number 7 picked up his fifth Ballon d’Or award to equal Messi’s record and bring the pair’s duopoly of the award to a staggering 10 years.

Kaka was the last player other than Ronaldo or Messi to win the prestigious individual gong all the way back in 2007.

The Ballon d’Or, considered by many as the ultimate prize for an individual, is awarded to the best player in Europe.
