Cristiano Ronaldo continued a fine year with yet another individual award as he won the Ballon d’Or ahead of Lionel Messi for the second successive year.

After winning La Liga, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Best Male Player award, among others in 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded the Ballon d’Or yet again – the fifth time in his career and the second year in a row.

The Real Madrid superstar is now tied on Ballon d’Or honours with Lionel Messi, who finished second, with his former Barcelona teammate Neymar finishing third.ย Suffice to say, his fans were in celebratory mood following the announcement.

Unsurprisingly, Messiโ€™s fans begged to differ, claiming that the Argentine wizard should have instead won the award.

Meanwhile, there were a few who simply appreciated both legends and their presence in the same generation of footballers.
