A picture is doing the rounds online claiming that Lionel Messi has won the 2017 Ballon d’Or.
Judging by the reaction it has caused on social media, this could potentially break the internet.
Plus, at the recent FIFA Best awards, Ronaldo scooped the top prize. That alone would suggest he was in for the big one being the prestigious Ballon d’Or.
Ronaldo also helped Real Madrid win both La Liga and the Champions League last season. Most people would expect Ronaldo to win this year’s 2017 Ballon d’Or as well.

That would see Ronaldo join Messi with a total of five Ballon d’Ors.
But, according to a photo of a alleged future edition of France Football magazine, Messi has won the award.
We’re unsure as to whether this is a fake photo or not — but time will tell.
Although reports claim France Football always make three different copies of their Ballon d’Or magazine, covering all ground with three finalists. Cheeky.
