Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has won both the UEFA Men's Best Player of the year 2016/17 and Forward of the Season 2016/17.

"There are the same goals every year, to meet the same challenges, win everything if possible, qualify for the World Cup with my national team", said Ronaldo who scored 12 goals in the Champions League last season including a brace in the final against Juventus.

He beat Juventus' Gianluigi Buffon and Barcelona's Lionel Messi to the award, which was presented at the UEFA Awards ceremony at Monaco on Thursday evening.

A magnificent campaign from Ronaldo saw him score a total of 42 goals across all competitions as Madrid added a LaLiga title to the defense of their European crown.

It was for the second consecutive time, but third in overall, with his first coming off following his spectacular performance in the 2013-14 season.

"I'm so glad to be here, and honoured to win this trophy again". I have to say thanks to my team-mates and congratulations to them too.

The award, which was announced at Thursday's Champions League draw in Nyon, adds to the Portugal international's triumphs in 2014 and 2016. "Thank you - I'm so happy".

With not even a hint of animosity to be detected between Messi and Ronaldo, many were more interested in the reaction of another Real Madrid player: Sergio Ramos.
