Ronaldo matches Messi with fifth ballon d'OR
Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Ballon d'Or for a fifth time to move level with rival Lionel Messi.
The Real Madrid player was named winner of France Football's prestigious award at a ceremony in Paris.
Ronaldo, 32, previously won the award in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016.
Messi finished second in the voting, while Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record transfer deal this summer, was third.
Chelsea's N'Golo Kante was eighth in the voting - the highest-placed of the seven Premier League players nominated.
Ronaldo has had an outstanding 2017, helping Madrid to a La Liga, Champions League and Spanish Super Cup treble this year.
