Luka Modric wins Ballon D’Or

Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric has won the 2018 Ballon d’Or, becoming the first player other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the award in more than a decade.

The 33 year old won his third successive Champions League in May, before helping Croatia to their first ever World Cup final in July.

Ronaldo, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in the summer, came second.

Atletico Madrid frontman Antoine Griezmann and PSG attacker Kylian Mbappe – both of whom won the World Cup with France – were third and fourth respectively, while Barcelona forward Messi finished fifth.
