Cristiano Ronaldo’s Instagram account now has enough pictures of his fifth Ballon d’Or, which he has been flaunting since grabbing the shiny trophy.
The one very obvious reason for the Real Madrid star being pretentious about the trophy is that he has now matched Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi’s record haul.
When one looks at his Instagram pictures, the focus surely shifts to the number ‘five’, which is the count of his Ballon d’Or trophies he has won in his illustrious career.
The 32-year-old has posed with his son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr and Dolores in Madrid in one of his pictures, while in another, the Portuguese star, and girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, have posed with a tiny babygrow which features the five Ballon d’Or trophies.
The Portuguese star was awarded the trophy in a ceremony in Paris on last Thursday.
Ronaldo was followed by Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Neymar in the 2017 Ballon d’Or ranking.
The 32-year-old took home the prize after he netted 42 goals in the 2016-17 period to take Real Madrid to a La Liga and Champions League double, reports Goal.com.
This was the second consecutive year when Ronaldo has won the award presented by France Football. Earlier, he had clinched the trophy on four other occasions- in 2008, 2013, and 2014.
