Cristiano Ronaldo won UEFA European men best footballer

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo won
the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award on
Thursday after winning both last season’s
Champions League and Euro 2016 with
Portugal.
Ronaldo, 31, received the accolade for the
second time in his career after finishing
ahead of Real team-mate Gareth Bale and
Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.
“I’m obviously delighted to receive this
award, it’s been an incredible season. But
these two other players deserve it as well,”
said Ronaldo, who also won the prize in
2013-14.
Ronaldo struck the winning spot-kick as Real
claimed a record 11th European Cup title,
beating city rivals Atletico on penalties in
May, before leading his country to Euro 2016
glory.
Ronaldo scored three goals en route to the
final of the tournament to equal France’s
Michel Platini’s record of nine goals in the
European Championship finals.
The award was voted for by journalists from
each of UEFA’s 55 member associations.
Norway striker Ada Hegerberg won the
women’s award, ahead of France’s
Amandine Henry and Dzsenifer Marozsan of
Germany, after helping Lyon lift the Women’s
Champions League trophy in addition to the
French league and cup double.
