Croatian playmaker Luka Modric was declared the victor for the 2018 Ballon d'Or award on Monday, December 3, in Paris.

There are 30 candidates on the shortlist for the male award, including 11 Premier League players, Lionel Messi and current holder Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Croatian won the Ballon d'Or on Monday night after a stellar 2018 which saw him win the Champions League and help his nation to the World Cup final.

Ronaldo was a distant second, with France and Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann completing the podium.

Kylian Mbappe missed out on a place in the top three but was given the inaugural Kopa Trophy for the world's best male player aged under 21. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep. Honoured by one and all, Hegerberg stood on the stage, ready to be greeted by former France global David Ginola and French DJ Martin Solveig. "They are the future".

With the result widely known even before the ceremony, World Cup 2018 victor Griezmann said on his way into the building: "It's a pity that a Frenchman didn't win".

One Honduran man tried to swim to the US side but quickly got in trouble in the rough waters of the Pacific. Officials said all the migrants were being moved to a former concert venue much farther from the border.

While France Football are usually known for their efficiency, it looks like they made a serious blunder this time around, with a journalist from Trinidad and Tobago, Lasana Liburd, revealing that they had reversed the order of his votes while taking them into consideration. "It's a huge step for women's football", Hegerberg said.

Disgusted by the uncalled-for question, Hegerberg kept her cool and brushed off Solveig with a flat "no", which he and some others laughed off.

"Best player in the world....for those who understand football of course".

He added, "Do you know how to twerk?"

"I just want to enjoy it".

AS, meanwhile, quote Modric saying: "If I've won its because I've done something special" alongside a picture of him with the trophy. I don't think the respect has been there. "I didn't really consider it a sexual harassment or anything in the moment", she told the BBC.
