Cristiano Ronaldo was named the world’s best player at the inaugural Best FIFA Football Awards in Zurich.


Real Madrid and Portugal forward Ronaldo, 31, beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann to the prize.


Ronaldo also won the Ballon d’Or in December, with both honours recognition for success in the Champions League with Real and Euro 2016 with Portugal.


Carli Lloyd of the United States was named the world’s best female player.


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


Each counted for 25% of the points.
