Speaking after receiving the award, Ronaldo said: “I am grateful for this award to all those who are here,” he said.

“It is also an award for all my colleagues — 2017 was an excellent year, unforgettable both collectively and individually.

“I also won my fifth Ballon d’Or and my second The Best award. I also dedicate it to my four children. That’s another record — three children in three months.

“We have to defend what is ours because there is always a Portuguese in the fight.

“I always believe and say that I am the best, whatever they say, and then I show it in the field. We are in the fight year after year,” he said.
