Lionel Messi broke yet another record on Monday night as he claimed a staggering sixth Ballon d'Or title.
Messi edged out fierce competition from Virgil van Dijk to clinch the most prestigious individual award in the game, creeping ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo's tally of five in the process.
It was the culmination of what has been an incredible year for Messi individually, as he once again underlined his credentials as one of the greatest players to have ever kick a ball about.
The man was born to play football and it is hard to imagine the game without him.
As he gets on in age, many fans are beginning to wonder when Messi might finally call it a day and hang up his magical boots.

- Messi admits being level with Ronaldo on Ballons d'Or' 'hurt'
The superstar even hinted that retirement was on the horizon following the Ballon d'Or ceremony.
Fortunately, that day looks to be far off as the Argentine maestro has shown no signs of slowing down.
In fact, even in training - where the stakes aren't as high - Messi has been tearing his teammates to absolute bits.
A video has gone viral today of the 31-year-old making light work of some of the finest players and goalkeepers on the planet.
Incredible - the only time it doesn't look the ball is glued to his feet is when he is whipping out some kind of obscene finish to embarrass the 'keeper.
You would think that only opposition players would be kept sleepless at night after being abused by Messi but after watching this video it is clear that no one is safe.
Now, Messi's main focus will be to right the wrongs of the past two seasons in the Champions League.
His Barcelona side was on the wrong end of two shock losses that saw them embarrassingly crash out of the tournament prematurely in consecutive seasons.
Having dominated La Liga, Messi will be desperate to get his hands on that famous trophy once again.
If his current form continues, it is surely just a matter of time.
