The much-awaited Ballon d'Or 2021 ceremony is not too far away. The award night will be organised by French football where the best men and women's players will be adjudged after voting by journalists around the globe. This time the wait is already long since the Coronavirus pandemic had suspended the event last time around.
The last recipient of the best men's footballer award was none other than the legend Lionel Messi who clinched his sixth prize, surpassing his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo who was tied with him with five titles before that. Both find themselves in the list of nominees this time around too and it will be interesting to see who gets the honour.
