Each year, the world's top football player is awarded the Ballon d’Or prize. Lionel Messi held the record for most wins, with 5 Ballon d’Or awards to his name. However, the Argentinian has been matched today, as Cristiano Ronaldo received the award for the 5th time.

With competition from Messi, Neymar Jr., Buffon and Modric, Ronaldo faced stiff competition this year. Still, with victories at Champions League and La Liga, scoring a jaw-dropping 42 points between the two events, it's not entirely surprising.
