Cristiano Ronaldo scooped the Ballon d’Or award on Monday night, following a five year wait to reclaim his prize.
The Real Madrid star fought off stiff competition from serial winner Lionel Messi and Bayern’s Franck Ribery.
Immediately after Ronaldo was announced as winner, every voters nominations were put online.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi voted for Barcelona teammates Xavi, Neymar and Andres Iniesta.
Cristiano Ronaldo voted for former Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao, as well as new teammate Gareth Bale and now Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.
Ronaldo wins in this regard too.
