The Argentine Superstar and Barcelona’s all time best player, Messi has won the Ballon D’or for the sixth time edging out his all time rival Cristiano Ronaldo
Lionel Messi has set the record to be the first footballer in the world to win the title 6 times followed by 34year old Christiano Ronaldo who has 5 titles.
The Argentine, who attended with his wife Antonella Roccuzzo and his two sons Thiago and Mateo, went into the evening in Paris level with Ronaldo on five Ballon d’Or awards each but now stands alone with six.
He had all of his sixth golden balls on stage with him and Messi could not contain his joy as he posed for photographs with each of them.
The 32-year-old is standing alone in the all-time list with six, his first Ballon d’Or since 2015
Messi’s win takes him one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who chose not to attend the evening
