Cristiano Ronaldo won the prestigious Ballon d'Or award for a fourth time, beating rival and last year’s winner Lionel Messi. He helped Real Madrid clinch last season’s Champion’s League title and led Portugal to victory at Euro 2016.

I feel so proud and happy.” A look at some key moments of his career.
