2015 Ballon d'Or: the winner is... Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has won the 2015 Fifa Ballon d'Or beating competition from Cristiano Ronaldo and his Barcelona team-mate Neymar.
Messi expressed his joy in claiming the prestigious award for the fifth time at Monday's ceremony in Zurich.

"It's a very special moment for me, to be back here on this stage winning another Ballon d'Or after being in the audience watching Cristiano win for two years," said an elated Messi after receiving the award.

"It's incredible that it's my fifth, it's much more than anything I dreamed of as a kid.

"I want to thank all those who voted for me first of all. I also want to thank obviously my team-mates, as I always say without them none of this would ever have been possible. 

"And lastly I want to thank football for everything it has brought me - both the bad and the good - because it has made me grow and learn always."
