Cristiano Ronaldo wins FIFA Ballon d’Or Award 2013
Ronaldo scored 69 goals for Real Madrid and Portugal last year, and his stunning hat trick against Sweden in a decisive World Cup playoff was perhaps the defining individual performance of the year.
Ronaldo was sobbing in tears as he accepted the award his son was beside him, saying ”there are no words to describe this moment.” He defeated Barcelona’s star Lional Messi and France winger Franck Ribery, who helped Bayern Munich to a sweep of major titles.
Voting was done by national team captains and coaches, plus selected journalists, in FIFA’s 209 member countries.
Well Done Ronaldo, Well Deserved Award for You.
