Modric went further than Ronaldo in the World Cup and won the tournament's Golden Ball award, add his matched achievements with Ronaldo at club level and you can see why he won.

France Football magazine has been awarding the Ballon d'Or since 1956, and created a women's award for the first time this year.

Players like Wesley Sneijder, Xavi and Manuel Neuer have certainly had vald arguments in previous years and it was good to see Modric, who deserved to win for many reasons, get his hands on the award.

Griezmann helped France to 2018 World Cup glory in Russian Federation, while he also enjoyed a triumphant Europa League campaign with Atletico but the 27-year-old finished third behind Modric on Monday.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema claimed first place on the list despite only scoring five league goals last season.

"My dream as a kid was to play for a big club and win trophies and this is a dream", Modrić said after collecting the award. I want to thank my teammates and coaches at Real Madrid and those with the national team.

'I held back the tears, it's been an exceptional night to form part of these players who have won this prize'.

The biggest shock when the results were revealed was the Ballon d'Or victor in the eyes of the Central African Republic. I didn't really think about it at the time to be honest.
