Karl Matchett

The 2017 Ballon d'Or winner will be announced at an award ceremony in Paris on Thursday. After another stellar year that included a La Liga title and Champions League victory, Cristiano Ronaldo is an overwhelming favourite to retain the award. If he wins, Ronaldo will equal the haul of five titles won by his great rival, Barcelona's Lionel Messi. There are some Premier League players in the running, including Harry Kane and Eden Hazard, so stay tuned for all the news from the event in Paris.

    A league title in Spain, retaining the Champions League and a whole host of goals and records—including one just last night as he became the first player to score in all six UCL group stage games. Another tremendous year for CR7.

    At 18 years and 11 months old, Kylian Mbappe is the youngest player to appear in the top 10 of the Ballon d'Or. We get a feeling this won't be his last nomination. 💫 https://t.co/1v7ahumT6M

    Arjun Pradeep @IndianRegista

    Lot of people speaking of Cristiano overturning Messi's 4-1 Ballon d'Or lead on him to make it 5-5. What's more noteworthy is that Cristiano overturned Messi's 4-2 UCL advantage to make it 4-4.#BallondOr2017 #BallondOr

    Nicklas Bendtner's name hasn't been revealed yet in the #BallondOr countdown. Can only assume that means he's made the top 10. https://t.co/9xrAEujprr
