Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned the first ever world player of the year at the Best FIFA Football Awards before gently sticking the boot into his closest rival.
The Real Madrid star fought off competition from Barcelona rival Lionel Messi to win the trophy in its inaugural year.
Ronaldo, wearing an electric blue suit and accompanied by his son Cristiano Jnr and partner Georgina Rodriguez, collected his award in person in Zurich.
He was also named in the FIFpro team of the year, alongside Barcelona pair Messi and Luis Suarez.
“I’m just very happy. I’m sorry some people from Barcelona aren’t here, but that’s understandable,” he said during yet another acceptance speech.
