The 32-year-old had already scooped FIFA’s ‘The Best’ award earlier this season as his triumphant 2016-17 campaign was recognised.

Fresh off the back of winning Euro 2016 with Portugal, Ronaldo followed that up with 42 goals in 46 games as Real Madrid won La Liga, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup – the first time the side had won four trophies in a season.
