Ronaldo, a highly decorated athlete, was recently named The Best FIFA Men's Player for 2016 and recognized as the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN. He also won the 2015/16 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award after leading Real Madrid to a first-place finish in the UEFA Champions League, as well as leading his home country of Portugal to the UEFA Euro 2016 championship for the first time ever. And, most recently he won the Ballon d' Or, the annual football award presented by France Football.
