It now seems that Ronaldo on the back of his stunning performances for Madrid at the latter half of last season has bagged the prestigious individual award.

Since 2009, Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the Ballon d'Or awards with Messi claiming 5 and Ronaldo winning 4.

The duopoly is all set to continue on Thursday with Ronaldo all but confirmed as the winner.

The Ballon d'Or award is held by France Football and the award is decided based on the votes of 30 top sports journalists across the world.
