Cristiano Ronaldo was named Best FIFA Men’s Player ahead of Lionel Messi for the second successive year.

The Real Madrid forward received 43.16 per cent of the total votes and was presented with the 2017 award by Diego Maradona and former Brazil striker Ronaldo at the London ceremony after beating off competition from Messi and the world’s most expensive player, Neymar.

How was the voting process calculated?

The men’s and women’s player and coach awards were decided by a two-part process in a 50-50 split.The captains and head coaches of all the world’s national teams count for 50 per cent of the result and the other 50 per cent was made up of votes from 200 football journalists and an online public ballot.

FIFA introduced the ‘Best Football Awards’ last season after splitting with France Football magazine, which meant they had to end their association with the Ballon d’Or award.
