Messi Wins His 7th Ballon d’Or Award 5

Paris Saint-Germain star player, Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d’Or award for a record seventh time.

The Argentine forward capped off a remarkable 2021 by beating off a strong list of nominees to claim the prize at a glitzy ceremony at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris on Monday.

Messi was widely expected to collect the gong again after leading his country to their first major trophy in 28 years with their Copa America triumph in the summer.

He also played a crucial role in Barcelona’s Copa del Rey success last season in what proved to be his final trophy at the Camp Nou before completing a shock summer transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

His latest accolade is the first he has received in his new home city and takes him two ahead of long-term rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who was among those to miss out on the award.
