Messi wins Ballon d’Or

Lionel Messi has been awarded the Ballon d’Or for a fourth year running.

He beat Barcelona team-mate Andres Iniesta and Real Madrid’s Ronaldo to the trophy, given every year to the world’s best football player.

25-year-old Messi netted 91 goals in 2012, setting a new world record for the most goals scored in a year.

But despite having this super striker on side, Barcelona failed to win either the Spanish league title or Champions League.

Messi found out he was the winner at a ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland on Monday.

He was part of a three-man shortlist for the prize, which is voted for by journalists, and national coaches and captains.

He becomes the first player to win four Ballons d’Or in a row, breaking another record.

“To tell you the truth this is really quite unbelievable,” the Argentine side. “The fourth award that I have had is just too great for words.”
