    Messi undisputed king of the 'beautiful game': fifth Ballon d'Or

    ”It’s incredible, much more than anything I dreamed of as a kid; I want to thank my team mates, without them none of this would have been possible” said Messi

    Lionel Messi reclaimed the FIFA Ballon d'Or award for the world player of the year on Monday, after watching his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo walk off with the prize for the previous two years. The Argentine Barcelona forward finished ahead of Ronaldo and Brazil forward Neymar as he scooped the award for a record fifth time overall, having previously won it four years in a row from 2009 to 2012.
