Ballon d’Or 2021: Messi Wins Record-Extending Seventh Award

Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Lionel Messi, has won this year’s Ballon d’Or award. Messi won the prize ahead of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, who finished in second place.

The 34-year-old, who left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, has 24 goals in 28 league games this calendar year and led Argentina to the Copa America in the summer.

The top five were completed by Jorginho (3rd, Chelsea), Karim Benzema (4th, Real Madrid), and N’Golo Kante (Chelsea).
