Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, together again.

Real Madrid‘s Portuguese scoring sensation moved level with his perennial Argentine counterpart on Thursday, winning the fifth Ballon d’Or of his illustrious career to equal Messi for the all-time lead.

Ronaldo, 32, captured the honour after a wildly successful 2016-17 campaign saw him lead Real Madrid to a second consecutive Champions League crown, while also spearheading the club’s march to the La Liga title.

Having gotten his hands on the hardware once again, Ronaldo has now claimed football’s top individual honour in four of the last five years.

More to come.
