Red carpet :FIFA Ballon d’Or 2015
Lionel Messi has beaten Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar to win the 2015 Ballon d’Or award.
The Barcelona forward has won the prize four times but lost out in the last two years to Real Madrid star Ronaldo.
However, after a stunning campaign with Barca, he held off competition from Ronaldo along with his colleague Neymar to scoop the prize.
Messi has now won the award for a record fifth time – putting him in the history books with a record that will surely never be beaten.
Messi helped Barcelona to victory in the Copa del Rey, La Liga, Champions League, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup and Club World Cup last year.
The only disappointment came in the Copa America, where hosts Chile defeated Argentina in a penalty shootout in the final.
