Cristiano Ronaldo Beats Lionel Messi To Another Record

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 25, 2017 09:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has beaten Lionel Mess to another individual record after smashing his arch-rival in the UEFA Men's Player of the Year vote, receiving more than three times of the Argentine's tally.

Click through the gallery above to see pictures of Ronaldo during the UEFA awards gala.

The 32-year-old won the prestigious award for the second consecutive year, becoming the first player to lift it three times in the process – he first won it in 2013/14.

The Portuguese has now won one more than FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who won the accolade in 2010/11 and 2014/15.

After receiving the award, the Los Blancos star said that he was honoured to win the trophy back-to-back and thanked his coaches and teammates.

"I'm so glad to be here, and honoured to win this trophy again," Ronaldo said, according to UEFA.com.

"Thank you to my teammates and congratulations to them too. I'm so blessed – thanks also to the supporters of Real Madrid, and everyone who helped me to achieve this trophy."

The UEFA Men's Player of the Year award is based on players' performances during a season for club and country.

In the poll, Ronaldo received 482 votes, with Messi getting 141 and Buffon ending on 109.

It's awfully quiet here. Where are all the haters? I was expecting to be seeing cries "penaldo" and "tap-ins" and "useless goals". Have you all given up already? Come on guys, it's not the same without you. I'm sure you can manage at least one more year of telling us that Ronaldo is finished and he's going to decline or leave Madrid.
