Cristiano Ronaldo wins FIFA Ballon d'Or Award 2013

Cristiano Ronaldo has won the 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or at an awards ceremony in Zurich, ending Lionel Messi‘s four-year reign as holder of the crown.

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.

A huge sports buff. I always had a keen interest in the world of media, which eventually led me to join the advertising industry. However, i still wanted something else, something more. i wanted to fuse my love for sports, experience in media and desire for independent work environment.
