Portugal and Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been awarded FIFA player of the year.
The Real Madrid forward, who recently won the Ballon d’Or earlier this month for the fourth time of his career, narrowly edged Lionel Messi into first place.
The honour willround off a sensational year for Ronaldo, who has won the Champions League with Madrid and Euro twenty- sixteen with Portugal.
He also recently led Madrid to Club World Cup glory, scoring a hat-trick in the final against Kashima Antlers as his side ran out four-two winners.
The Portuguese currently has fifty-five goals in fifty-seven games for Madrid and has netted thirteen times in the year for Portugal.
