The Real Madrid star took home the prize after guiding his team to a La Liga and Champions League double in 2016-17
s the second straight year Ronaldo has won the award presented by France Football, and he was also named the Best FIFA Men’s Player of 2016-17 in October.
Ronaldo also took home the Ballon d’Or in 2008, 2013, and 2014
FIFA formerly awarded the Ballon d’Or in conjunction with France Football, but the two entities split their prizes last year.
Ronaldo has picked up where he left off last season in this year’s Champions League, scoring in all six of Madrid’s group-stage matches –a feet that has never been achieved before.
But he hasn’t matched that form in La Liga, netting just two times in 10 appearances thus far.
