The Ballon d'Or Awards will take place on Thursday evening, but it seems one of Cristiano Ronaldo's sponsors has let slip prior to the ceremony that he will win the main prize. Did you see what happened?

Leading footwear brand Nike, who also sponsor nominee Cristiano Ronaldo, may have let the cat out of the bag early.
A picture of the football boots Nike are set to release in honour of the Real Madrid star's fifth Ballon d'Or has leaked. The only problem is Ronaldo is yet to win the award.

On the shoe, the dates outlining each year the Portuguese winger has been the recipient of the award clearly carved out, including 2017. With the ceremony only set to take place later today, it now seems there is no reason for the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar to even show up...
Do you think Nike botched this one?
