dpadpa 25/08/2016

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the best player in Europe for 2015-2016.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the best player in Europe for 2015-2016, ahead of Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid and teammate Gareth Bale.

Ronaldo, 31, guided Real to their record-breaking 11th Champions League triumph, and was top scorer in the competition with 16 goals.

He single-handedly destroyed hapless Wolfsburg in the quarter-finals, and then slotted home the winning penalty in the dramatic shootout in the final against neighbours Atletico.

Ronaldo then captained Portugal to unexpected glory at Euro 2016.

Although he was injured early on in the final against hosts France, his team surprisingly won 1-0.
