The year 2016 has been totally fruitful to the 31-year old Portuguese.
Currently in his individual trophy cabinet in his museum is the UEFA Champions League, the European Championship, the Club World Cup and his fourth Ballon d’Or after quite a remarkable 2016, which of course just got even better, because he has won the European Sportsman of the Year – becoming the first ever footballer to do so.
The former Manchester United man was up against the likes of British tennis player Andy Murray, German F1 driver Nico Rosberg and Hungarian swimmer Katinka Hosszu, and it was the 31-year-old that received the most points with 204.
That put him 24 points ahead of his nearest challenger, Murray (180) while Hosszu (136) and Rosberg (115) were further behind.
