Twitter went into a frenzy after Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was named Best FIFA Men’s Player of 2016-17.
The 32-year-old took home the award for the second year in row, after edging Neymar and Lionel Messi at the awards ceremony in London.
In the year under review, Ronaldo led the Blancos to a La Liga and Champions League double, including two goals in the Champions League final against Juventus.
Twitter fell over itself to applaud the forward with Pele leading the charge.
