Lionel Messi wins his 7th Ballon d’Or

Lionel Messi was officially announced as the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner on Monday.

The Argentine would pick up his 7th award, which further extends the record Messi currently holds for most Ballon d’Ors.

Though Messi’s FC Barcelona did not have a great season overall, the 34-year-old still shone and won a number of games almost by himself in 2020/21.

Elsewhere, Messi was instrumental in Argentina picking up the Copa America over the summer.
