Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the world’s best player at the Fifa Best awards in Zurich.
The award comes off the back of Ronaldo winning the 61st edition of the Ballon d’Or in September following a stellar year which saw him achieve Champions League and Euro 2016 success with Real Madrid and Portugal.
Ronaldo beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann to clinch the prize on Monday.
“Thanks for everything you have done for me. I must thank my family and my whole staff for everything they have given me. 2016 was the best year of my career.
“I had a lot of doubts, but at the end of it the trophies speak for themselves. They show I’ve lived up to the expectations and I achieved the best I could.
“This achievement is incredible. I will never forget this year. I’m really happy.”
Ronaldo had earlier been named in the FIFPro World 11, while Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri claimed the FIFA Coach of the Year award.
