Ronaldo topped a strong list of nominees after seeing off competition from the likes of Joao Felix, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Neves and Bruno Fernandes.

Upon receiving the award, the Bianconeri star commented on what was a difficult year for him, and reserved praise for Sporting Lisbon, the club with whom he started his professional career.

"This world is so fast, with the social media, the press, it's been wild," Ronaldo said, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

"It's been an extremely complicated year on a personal level. Don't let anyone pull you down.

"… I can't help but mention that Sporting deserves a little prize. Next time."

The former Real Madrid star was named as his country's best footballer for the first time in 2007, during his time at Manchester United, and has only been beaten to the award twice in the years since, losing out to Simao Sabrosa in 2010 and former Real Madrid teammate Pepe in 2014.
