Cristiano Ronaldo has been declared the winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or for the second straight year at a glittering ceremony in Zurich.

Ronaldo beat shortlisted rivals Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer to the title after a season which saw him lead Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League crown.

Ronaldo had finished runner-up behind Messi in 2011 and 2012 before pipping the Argentinian in 2013 – and said he hoped there would be more to come.

Ronaldo said: “It has been an unforgettable year and win a trophy of this kind is something unique.

“I want to continue working as I have so far to go on to win more titles as an individual and in a team.

“Of course this is something that is always with me. I want to become one of the greatest players of all time and this requires a lot of effort but I hope to get there.”
