Cristiano Ronaldo has been named The Best FIFA Men's Player for 2016, beating Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann to the honour.
No Premier League players made it into the Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 TOTY, although Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri won Best Men's Coach.
Ronaldo earned 34.54 percent of the total voting points of the 23-candidate ballot, while Messi finished second with 26.42 percent.
And virtually no one could dispute the forward winning both awards, following a year in which the Portugal worldwide helped his country win their first major trophy while claiming the Champions League for an astonishing 11th time with Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho declared that Messi is definitely the best player in the world, even though Ronaldo is the one that won.
Germany's Silvia Neid retired in 2016 after capping an 11-year spell in charge of the national team by guiding them to Olympic gold for the first time.
The other big names in the fray for awards are Claudio Ranieri and Zinedine Zidane for the best manager and Marta for the best female player award. Following last week's 2-1 first-leg defeat, Barca must win when the two sides meet again, or get knocked out before the quarterfinals. Five-times victor and four-times runner-up Messi was second and Frenchman Antoine Griezmann third. The other nominees were Iceland fans at Euro 2016, and Dutch club ADO Den Haag, whose fans brought soft toys to children supporting rival team Feyenoord.
Earlier in 2016, Ronaldo experienced the high point of his career when he led Portugal to the UEFA Euro 2016 championship, while taking his personal tally of global goals to 68.
Neid, Germany's coach during the Rio Olympics, should win the best coach award after helping her nation win gold, which will be a major highlight in her global career.
