Messi is the best in the world

The Argentine and Barcelona star Lionel Messi was crowned FIFA World Player of the Year on Monday, beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil van Dyke.

The award was announced at a ceremony held by the International Federation of the game (FIFA), in the Italian city of Milan, and attended by top football stars.

Messi led Barcelona to the league title last season, leading the Champions League scorers with 12 goals, and reached the semi-finals with his team.

Messi was knocked out of the semi-finals of the Copa America by Argentina, who later won the title.

Ronaldo missed the ceremony, while Sergio Ramos, Van Dijk, Marcelo and Modric attended.
