Modric's win breaks the Lionel Messi-Ronaldo duopoly of the last 10 years and it follows his player of the tournament prize at Russian Federation 2018 and UEFA player of the year accolade last month.

The former Tottenham midfielder was rewarded for his excellence for both beaten World Cup finalists Croatia and Champions League winners Real Madrid at the governing body's The Best Awards at London's Royal Festival Hall on Monday evening.

"I want to say a few words in Spanish", he continued.

Best Women's Player appropriately went to Brazil's Marta, who is probably the sport's greatest current proponent, whilst Best Men's Coach went to French national team coach Didier Deschamps, and Reynald Pedros won the Best Women's Coach award for Olympique Lyonnais.

Mohamed Salah does not deserve to win the 2018 Fifa Puskas Award, according to Twitter.

Now with Real Madrid, the 26-year-old Courtois joked before his award was announced that Federation Internationale de Football Association should also hand out a save-of-the-year prize.

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line, with his long-time Barcelona rival Lionel Messi positioned just behind in a three-man attacking midfield also containing Chelsea's Eden Hazard and PSG's Kylian Mbappe.

The Liverpool player's goal against Merseyside rivals, Everton, in the Premier League was adjudged the best goal and victor of the Puskas Award.

"These things were not a burden, they only further motivated me", Modric said at the World Cup. Mohamed Salah's curling effort against Everton won that award.

"This trophy is also for my family, without whom I would not be the player and person that I am".

France´s World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps won the best coach of the year prize in recognition for his work in leading Les Bleus to success in Russian Federation.

Voting for the player and coach categories was conducted by national team captains and managers, selected journalists and, for the first time, an online poll of fans.

Among the others honored in London were Peru's travelling supporters, who lit up their first World Cup in 36 years and German player Lennart Thy.
