Cristiano Ronaldo claimed Fifa’s inaugural best football player of year award on Monday night – and on Tuesday morning he was being congratulated by his Real Madrid teammates. The Portugal captain pipped fellow La Liga forwards Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann to claim the new trophy.
He also sealed a place in Fifa’s best XI – and collected a miniature version of the same trophy.
Returning to Real Madrid training on Tuesday, Ronaldo received a very warm welcome from his club’s players and staff who all congratulated him.
