Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has won a record sixth Ballon d’Or trophy

Lionel Messi is the official winner of the 2019 Men’s Ballon d’Or.

After a remarkable 2019 that already saw him win FIFA’s ‘The Best’ award, the Argentine has become the first player to win France Football’s annual prize for the sixth time.

Messi was presented with the accolade during a ceremony at the Theatre du Chatelet, Paris, adding it to the trophies he won in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Sixth victory for Messi

The golden award will take pride of place in Messi’s 2019 collection, which includes: the Pichichi Trophy, European Golden Shoe and UEFA Club Forward of the Year.

Virgil van Dijk had been tipped as the closest rival to Messi going into the awards in France, but the Liverpool man’s chances looked to be dashed by Spanish reports last week.

The likes of Mundo Deportivo claimed that the Barcelona star had already been voted the winner, while a photographer even suggested that victorious snaps had been taken.
