Ballon d’Or 2019: And The Winner Is... Lionel Messi!

Lionel Messi has won a sixth Ballon d'Or at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris tonight.

The Barcelona star lead a 30-man shortlist, with Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo expected to finish on the podium.
There was no place for last year's winner Luka Modric, though his Real Madrid team-mates Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard are in the running.

Messi becomes the first player to win the award on six occasions, having been tied with Ronaldo on five, and wins it for the first time in four years
