Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo says that he is grateful to his fans after winning FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year award for a second time.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked his fans "all over the world" after winning the FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year award.

The 32-year-old beat Barcelona rival Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar to the gong at a ceremony in London on Monday evening.

The Portugal international, who has scored 44 goals for club and country in 2017, has now sealed the accolade for a second consecutive time after it was introduced in January.

"Thank you a lot, to the guys who voted for me," Ronaldo said after being presented with the gong. "Real supporters, my teammates, my coach, my president, I have to thank them too.

"We are in England for the first time and I win consecutive awards. This is a great moment for me. I know I have fans all over the world so thanks a lot for the support."

Meanwhile, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was named FIFA Best Coach of the Year and Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud picked up the Puskas Award for his scorpion-kick goal last season.
