Barcelona forward Messi has won the 2019 Ballon d’Or for a record sixth time, pipping Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to the prize.

The Argentine is the first player to win the prize six times as he beat Liverpool defender Van Dijk (second) and fellow serial winner Ronaldo (third).



The Brazilian was up against Barcelona’s Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Manchester City’s Ederson for the prize, with Ter Stegen pipping Ederson to second place.



Megan Rapinoe won the Women’s Ballon d’Or following her fantastic year on and off the field as she won the World Cup with the USA in the summer.

Behind her in the voting were England’s Lucy Bronze and Rapinoe’s USA teammate, Alex Morgan.

Elsewhere, Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt won the Kopa Trophy, handed to the world’s best player under 21.

Van Dijk’s teammate Sadio Mane finished fourth while attacking partner Mohamed Salah finished fifth, with Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe receiving the sixth-highest number of votes.
