Cristiano Ronaldo wins Ballon d’Or for the third time

Real Madrid’s forward Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded with the Ballon d’Or , football player of the year, for the third time.

The Portuguese was running against Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manul Neuer.

Winning 37.66% of all votes, Ronaldo won himself the award for the second year in a row. Messi was second on 15.76%, only narrowly ahead of Neuer, who had 15.72%.

Ronaldo, who scored 52 goals in 43 games during 2014, looked emotional when collecting the award from former France, Barcelona and Arsenal striker Thierry Henry.

The 29-year-old said: “I would like to thank all of those who voted for me, my president, my coach and Real Madrid. It has been an unforgettable year. To win this trophy at the end of it is something incredibly unique.”
