Cristiano Ronaldo has been awarded the 2016 Ballon D’Or prize.
The Real Madrid superstar beat off competition from rival Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, to claim his fourth Ballon D’Or.
Ronaldo had previously won the award in 2008, 2013 and 2014.
The 31-year-old enjoyed a brilliant year, winning the Champions League with Madrid, before captaining Portugal to European Championship glory in France, making him a hot contender to win this year.
Messi is however still ahead of Ronaldo, as he has won a record five Ballon D’Or prizes.
The Portuguese is however a strong favourite to win FIFA Best Player Award in January.
