Yesterday afternoon in Paris, France, the Ballon d’Or was awarded to Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo for the fourth time, just one short of record holder Lionel Messi, who has five. From a shortlist of 30 players, Ronaldo unsurprisingly reigned supreme having had an outstanding year in competitions, in both the Champions Leagues as well as the European Championships. In the end, Ronaldo romped home with the award, receiving double the votes of 2nd placed Messi, while 11 of the nominated players received no votes at all. Find the full list along with voting as put out by France Football.
