Cristiano Ronaldo has recently won the Ballon d'Or winner for the fifth time making his exclusion from the list surprising. This award goes to the male soccer player who has performed the best over the last year.

Perhaps Ronaldo's stats aren't as good as his performance.

Ronaldo accepted the award and expressed his delight at winning the coveted trophy for the fifth time. He was the best scorer in the Champion League. He thanked his team mates and all those that helped him his success.
