Cristiano Ronaldo wins 2016 Ballon d'Or

Cristiano Ronaldo capped a brilliant year by being named as the winner of the Ballon d'Or for a fourth time in Paris on Monday night. 

The Real Madrid forward topped the poll of 173 journalists worldwide to take home France Football magazine's coveted award, taking the majority vote despite his absence while he prepares for the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan. 

However, in doing so he beat the likes of Lionel Messi of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, who finished second and third respectively. 

Ronaldo, who moves to within one of Messi's record five Ballon d'Or wins, was the overwhelming favourite after a stellar 12 months in which he won Euro 2016, the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.
