For the first time in 64 years, no player will be awarded the illustrious Ballon d'Or award, with organisers France Football citing that 2020 simply cannot be treated as an ordinary year.

Only three players have managed to win the award since 2008, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's yearly race for the individual accolade being one of the most gripping player rivalries in the history of the game.
