Chritiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Frank Ribery

Yesterday, at a gala held in Zurich, Cristiano Ronaldo was crowned the 2013 Ballon d’Or winner. The Portuguese maestro, beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery to the award.
Ronaldo clinched his second World Best Player award, thanks to votes from coaches, national team captains and a media representative of FIFA member nations.
The voting system, taken from FIFA’s website, awards five points to first choice, three to second and one to third, and unsurprisingly, neither Messi nor Ronaldo voted for the other in first place.
