If there is any footballer in the world that hates losing at anything, then that footballer has to be Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the Portuguese and Juventus superstar had to watch on as the FIFA Men’s Best player award was handed over to Polish and Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski.
Ronaldo, 35, won the prestigious individual award in 2016 and 2017 but has been waiting ever since to it a hat-trick of wins.
And despite knowing the Poland star was heavy favourite going into the ceremony, Ronaldo still looked gutted after missing out on the award.
As Fifa president Gianni Infantino walked down a corridor to ‘surprise’ the winner, Ronaldo and Messi – all the while watching on via video link – realised it wasn’t their year.
And Ronaldo sat there with brow furrowed and arms crossed, with the disappointment etched across his face.
Some will argue though that it was not disappointment on the face of Ronaldo rather a show of disinterest. It was revealed after the award presentations that Ronaldo had voted for Lewandowski and Messi as his top two for the award.
