Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi to win Ballon d’Or 2016
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo beat rival Lionel Messi to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or award for a fourth time.
The 31-year-old is now one behind Barcelona’s Messi, who took the honour for a fifth time last year.
Atletico Madrid’s French forward Antoine Griezmann finished third in the vote.
Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win last season’s Champions League and scored three goals as Portugal won Euro 2016.
