Messi wins fourth FIFA Ballon d’Or

Leo Messi has made it four FIFA Ballon d’or awards in a row tonight at the awards ceremony. He is the 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or winner and has beaten the likes of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Andrés Iniesta. It is an incredible feat for the 25 year old who now goes into the history books. The dominance of Cruyff, Van Basten and Platini – all with 3 awards to their name, is now a thing of the past.
