Cristiano Ronaldo wins FIFA Ballon d'Or for the fourth time


Real Madrid and Portugese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo has won the prestigious Ballon d'Or award for a fourth time.

Ronaldo, 31, helped Real Madrid win last season's Champions League and scored three goals as Portugal won Euro 2016.

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

"I never thought in my mind that I would win the Golden Ball four times. I am pleased. I feel so proud and happy," said Ronaldo.

"I have the opportunity to thank all of my team-mates, the national team, Real Madrid, all of the people and players who helped me to win this individual award."

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