Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d’Or award for the fifth time – and the second year in a row.

Victory took the 32-year-old Portugal international level with 30-year-old Argentine Messi, who won the most recent of his five awards in 2015.

Last season, Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win the Champions League and their first La Liga title since 2012.

The former Manchester United star collected the Ballon d’Or after also being named Fifa’s Men’s World Player of the Year in a London ceremony in October.

Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or on four other occasions – in 2008 with Manchester United, and in 2013, 2014 and 2016 with Real Madrid.
