Lionel Messi won the men’s Ballon d’Or award for a record-extending seventh time at a ceremony in Paris on Monday.
Messi, now 34, won the last edition of the Ballon d’Or in 2019 before last year’s awards were cancelled due to the pandemic.
He won the Copa del Rey with Barcelona and then captained Argentina to Copa America glory before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in August.
