  • Cristiano Ronaldo and arch-rival Lionel Messi have won the award five times each over the past 10 years

Luka Modric has drawn further plaudits from the Spanish press on Tuesday after the Real Madrid midfielder won the Ballon d'Or.

"To win the Champions League and play in the final of the World Cup as captain was fantastic and finish with this is.it is hard for me to chose from those moments".

Modrić has etched his name in history becoming the first Croatian to ever win the award.

The 33-year-old ended Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's 10-year dominance over the gong when he was honoured with the award in Paris on Monday night.

Women's fight for recognition on the biggest stage, meanwhile, took a big step with the award of Hegerberg, who plays for French side Olympic Lyonnais. In the last 12 years, the now Juventus star has 11 podium finishes. Modric had never previously been in the top three.

Cape Town - Luka Modric's father held back tears as he paid a moving tribute to the 2018 Ballon d'Or victor at the awards ceremony in Paris, on Monday evening.

Paris Saint-Germain's teenage forward Kylian Mbappe - who won the Kopa Trophy for the best young player - came fourth, leaving Messi to settle for fifth position.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with Olympic Lyonnais and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season. "It's a huge step for women's football", Hegerberg said.

Harry Kane's impressive season along with his Golden Boot award at the World Cup earnt him first prize on the South Pacific Island of Vanuatu.

"In my second year in Tottenham, I played as a midfielder and I felt better in the middle".

With the result widely known even before the ceremony, World Cup 2018 victor Griezmann said on his way into the building: "It's a pity that a Frenchman didn't win".

The Ballon d'Or has been awarded by France Football magazine since 1956 and sees their editorial staff put together the 30-man shortlist. I don't think the respect has been there.
