Yesterday, Lionel Messi was awarded his 7th Ballon d'Or. Messi has had quite a fruitful year last season and has achieved a lot for both his club (Barcelona) and country (Argentina). He captained Barcelona to win the Spanish domestic cup, 'Copa Del Rey' and was also the top goal scorer for the Spanish La Liga.
For his country, he captained them to the Copa America tournament, where he has scored the most goals and gave the most assists (Top Goalscorer and Top Assister). This gave him the honorary award of Copa America Player of the Tournament(POTT). Lionel Messi is unarguably the best footballer in history.
