Watch as Argentina and Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi wins the seventh men’s Ballon d’Or of his illustrious career at a ceremony in Paris.
The Paris St Germain forward saw off competition from Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.
Argentina international Messi claimed a maiden Copa America title with his country during the year and was top-scorer in LaLiga for the 2020-21 season, with 30 goals as Barcelona finished third.
The 34-year-old also helped Barca win the Copa del Rey before moving to PSG in the summer.
He collected the honour for a record-sixth time in 2019 – one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo – before the awards were cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
