Cristiano Ronaldo has won the UEFA Best Player in Europe award for the third time in four years.

The Real Madrid star, 32, scooped the honour after helping his side to Champions League glory in 2016-17, scoring 12 goals in the competition.

A magnificent campaign from Ronaldo saw him score a total of 42 goals across all competitions as Madrid added a LaLiga title to the defence of their European crown.

In a poll of 80 Champions League and Europa League coaches, together with 55 journalists, representing each of UEFA’s member associations, Ronaldo received 482 points, with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi (141) and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon (109) finishing second and third respectively.
