Lionel Messi has won a record seventh Ballon d’Or, beating Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho to the title.

The forward inspired Argentina to their first Copa America title since 1993, ending his long wait for silverware at international level.

He also lifted the Copa del Rey with Barcelona before joining Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Messi collected his seventh Ballon d’Or during a ceremony in the French capital on Monday evening.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar faced stern competition from the likes of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea’s Jorginho to win the world’s most-coveted individual accolade once again.

The star-studded shortlist for the iconic golden ball trophy also included Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah and Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
