  • Kaka's Ballon d'Or Alicia Keys and Fred Claus- The last time Messi and Ronaldo did not rule

Salah is placed behind Luka Modric (1st), Cristiano Ronaldo (2nd), Antoine Griezmann (3rd), Kylian Mbappe (4th) and Lionel Messi (5th).

Griezmann helped France to 2018 World Cup glory in Russian Federation, while he also enjoyed a triumphant Europa League campaign with Atletico but the 27-year-old finished third behind Modric on Monday. Modric claimed the Golden Ball as the most valuable player at the tournament, averaging 69 passes per match and logging the most minutes at the tourney of any player.

For the first time, France Football is also giving out a women's Ballon d'Or award in addition to the Kopa Trophy, named for French great Raymond Kopa and given to the world's best player under 21.

This is the first time in the last 10 years that neither Ronaldo nor Messi has won the Ballon d'Or.

But Modric picked up the award for the best player in the world after his part in winning the Champions League and reaching the World Cup final.

The 33-year-old was instrumental as Real clinched a third successive Champions League trophy last season. Modric had never previously been in the top three.

The closest a Croatian ever came to the award was Davor Šuker who finished second in 1998 after being the top-scorer at the World Cup in France.

Michel had earlier said that Stevenson appeared to be concerned when he first arrived at the hospital Saturday night. The defeated champion made it to his stool but it was then that it became apparent that something wasn't right.

Mario Mandžukić, who retired from global football after the World Cup, was ranked 25th.

The win was slightly overshadowed when the host DJ Martin Solveig asked Hegerberg to twerk on stage in celebration.

Kyrgyzstan went left field with Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois as their top pick while Mongolia's pick was slightly more conventional in French wonder kid and Kopa award victor Kylian Mbappe. He wanted me to open myself more.

After collecting her Ballon d'Or, Hegerberg told The Associated Press she has no plans to reconsider her decision taken to preserve her "authenticity and my values, as a person, as a footballer".

'I held back the tears, it's been an exceptional night to form part of these players who have won this prize'.

"I admired him and I respected him a lot when he was a player". I didn't really think about it at the time to be honest.

"People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women".
