Messi makes history, clinches 7th Ballon d’Or

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi has been awarded the 2021 Ballon d’Or.

At a star-studded ceremony in Paris on Monday evening, the 34-year-old Argentine forward was crowned the world’s best player for the seventh time.

 

Buzz had been growing for weeks that the Argentine was a cert for soccer’s highest individual accolade.

Stanley Matthews of Blackpool and England was the inaugural winner while Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United and Real Madrid have dominated the 21st century, winning 12 times between them.
