Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has been selected on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or.

Throughout Monday, France Football has been drip-feeding the nominees for the prestigious individual award, with the names being revealed in groups of five.

The sixth and final batch includes Blues playmaker Hazard, who played a leading role for Chelsea as Antonio Conte's side won the Premier League title last season.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo - the favourite for the accolade - is also included after starring in the Spanish outfit's La Liga and Champions League triumphs.

French youngster Kylian Mbappe - now at Paris Saint-Germain - is recognised for helping Monaco win Ligue 1 and reach the Champions League semi-finals, as is defender Leonardo Bonucci after impressing for Juventus.

The remaining player is Isco, who has recently emerged as one of Real Madrid's key men in the final third of the pitch.
