The prestigious UEFA draw and awards ceremony took place in Monaco on Thursday night, and the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were seen rocking some high fashion. Who was the best dressed?
The Real Madrid forward was the big winner on the evening, and, staggeringly, Messi failed to walk away with an award. This must have been a first for him!
Ronaldo was seen sporting a grey three-piece suit with a black tie, black pocket square and black leather shoes.
Cristiano Ronaldo was named UEFA Player of the Season for 2016-2017 on Thursday after a campaign which saw the Portuguese superstar help Real Madrid to the La Liga and Champions League double.
It was the third time that Ronaldo had won the award which was presented on the sidelines of the Champions League group stage draw
Leo Messi was one of the guests of honour at Thursday’s Champions League draw ceremony at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.
The Argentinian was among the nominees for best striker and best player, but although UEFA opted to hand the silverware elsewhere on this occasion, the Barça superstar was still the focus of attention at the showpiece event.
Francesco Totti became just the 17th recipient of the UEFA President’s Award as he received the recognition during Thursday’s draw for this season’s Champions League group stages.
Luka Modric won the Midfielder of the Year accolade, whilst Gianluigi Buffon and Sergio Ramos claimed the prizes for the best goalkeeper and best defender, respectively.
