Lionel Messi has won the 2015 Fifa Ballon d’Or ahead of Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona team-mate Neymar, claiming the prestigious award at Monday’s ceremony in Zurich.

It is the Argentina international’s fifth World Player of the Year title – more than any other player in history.

The 27-year-old first won the prestigious Ballon d’Or in 2009, before it merged with Fifa’s World Player of the Year award, and won it every year afterwards until 2012 when Ronaldo snatched it from him for the first time.
