Cristiano Ronaldo is the 2016 Ballon d'Or winner.

The forward has scored 102 goals in 110 appearances for club and country this year, and inspired Real Madrid and Portugal to Champions League and Euro 2016 victories respectively.

It adds to the titles he won in 2008, 2013 and 2014.

Ronaldo is now one behind Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, who received the honour in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

The Ballon d'Or is given to the best Europe-based player as voted by 173 journalists from around the world. It has been awarded by France Football every year since 1956, but for the past six years it became the Fifa Ballon d'Or in association with world football's governing body.

However, Fifa ended its association with the award in September.

Fifa will hand out its own prize for the world's best men's player, along with the best women's player and team of the year, at the Best Fifa Football Awards ceremony in Zurich on 9 January.
