At this time, a live camera showed back near the Eiffel Tower.

The owner of the 2017 award also said thank you: `I am the top scorer in the Champions League, so I want to thank my teammates. They are very important to me. I also thank all of them.

This is the fifth time Ronaldo has won the Golden Ball, a traditional title since 1956 organized by France Football magazine.

By winning this year’s award, Ronaldo also equaled Lionel Messi’s record of five crowns.

The results of this year’s Golden Ball award are also consistent with many suggested information before the ceremony.

According to the media, Ronaldo was crowned thanks to his contributions in helping Real win two La Liga titles and the Champions League in the 2016-2017 season.

While Ronaldo won more important collective titles, the other two top candidates only won the King’s Cup even though they also played well.
