Gareth Bale feels that his Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo should win the Ballon d'Or when the award is handed out in the New Year.

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has said that Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d'Or.

The Portuguese forward is favourite to win the prestigious honour in the New Year, and his teammate has tipped him to be handed the gong.

"Cristiano should be given the Ballon d'Or," Bale is quoted as saying on Sky Sports News.

"He's proved he is the best all year, and all throughout last season. He is the best in the world and he deserves the award."
