Lionel Messi wins Ballon d’Or for sixth time

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Lionel Messi wins Ballon d’Or for sixth time
Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi won a record sixth men's Ballon d'Or award at a ceremony in Paris in the early hours of Tuesday, beating Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane to take the honours.

Now aged 32, it is Messi's first Ballon d'Or since 2015 and his sixth overall as he moves one ahead of his old rival Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi succeeds Luka Modric, the Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder who won the prize last year. Awarded jointly by FIFA  and France Football, the prize was a merger of the FIFA World Player of the Year award and the Ballon d'Or, the two most prestigious individual honours in world football.

The FIFA Ballon d'Or was awarded based on votes from international journalists and national team coaches and captains, who selected the players they deemed to have performed the best in the previous calendar year.
