Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been crowned The Best FIFA Men’s Player of the year.
The Poland international beat competition from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to claim the award for the first time in his career.
Lewandowski becomes the first player other than Messi or Ronaldo since Ronaldinho in 2005 to win the award.
The 32-year old was the first choice of both Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny and captain Seamus Coleman. Kenny chose Kevin de Bruyne and Kylian Mbappe in his top-3, with Coleman going for the old stagers Messi and Ronaldo.
A bored-looking Ronaldo looked on via satellite as Lewandowski was presented with his award by FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
England and Manchester City defender Lucy Bronze was named the The Best FIFA Women's Player of the year, with Denmark's Pernille Harder and Bronze's former Lyon teammate Wendie Renard taking the podium spots.
Current Netherlands - and soon to be England - head coach Sarina Wiegman was named The Best FIFA Women’s Coach for the second time in her career.
