The Portugal and Real Madrid star now has four, one shy of Lionel Messi’s record, after winning both EURO 2016 and the UEFA Champions League this season.

“For me to receive my fourth Golden Ball, the emotion is like the first one. It’s the dreaming come true, again. I never thought in my mind to win four times the Golden Ball. I’m so pleased. I’m so happy. I want to thank all my teammates with the national team and Real Madrid… who helped me to win this individual award.”
