This will be the first time since 2008 that another player will defeat the duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d'Or award.

Modric's Ballon d'Or victory is the 11th such occasion for Real Madrid.

"As a kid we all have dreams". Marca use Modric's quote of: 'My dream since childhood was to be a player in a great team, the Ballon d'Or is more than a dream'.

Croatia lost 4-2 to France in Moscow in the final in July.

"To change position allowed me to develop my game, before I was more an offensive player", said Modric, who won a third consecutive Champions League title with Madrid this year. Modric had never previously been in the top three.

The win was slightly overshadowed when the host DJ Martin Solveig asked Hegerberg to twerk on stage in celebration.

Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric said he was "happy, proud and honoured" after being named victor of the 2018 men's Ballon d'Or on Monday. And Salah scored 44 goals in his debut season for Liverpool as well as reaching the Champions League final.

Despite helping Barcelona canter to a domestic double last term, Lionel Messi could only muster a fifth place finish, his lowest ever finish since 2006 some 12 years ago, as Argentina crash out of the World Cup in the Round of 16.

Despite the fact that both players have won the award five times, their fans were not enthused that it went to Modric this time.

The outspoken 23-year-old Hegerberg said she won't play for Norway at the Women's World Cup in France next June.

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". I didn't really think about it at the time to be honest.
