Cristiano Ronaldo is crowned FIFA’s Best Player in the World beating Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.
After winning the award for FIFA’s Best Men’s Player for 2016, Ronaldo said “this shows that people aren’t blind”.
Then, he said: “I am sorry that some people from Barcelona aren’t here with us… but that is understandable.”
In 2016 he won the European Championship, Champions League, Club World Cup, plus individual best player awards from FIFA, UEFA, and France Football magazine.
Ronaldo has tweeted: “Delighted to win The Best FIFA award. Wouldn’t be possible without my teammates, coaches and you who support me every day. Thanks everyone!”
The winner was decided by votes from national captains and managers, who each picked, in order, their top three players of 2016.
