He’s won it as we know he would. Cristiano Ronaldo is now officially the best player – not that there were ever any doubts – and he’s spoken of his pride after receiving France Football’s award.

OK, should not be too difficult. Let’s see, he’s got nine goals to his name this season so it’s only 34 to go now and he’ll better his tally.
