International football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, an Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athlete since 2013, recently bagged “The Best FIFA Men’s Player” for the second consecutive year.
Ronaldo got the most number of votes combined from the team captains and managers from the national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and a select group of global media representatives.
“Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.
Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017. For the second consecutive year, he won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer. He also helped his team win the Spanish La Liga Cup. In 2017, he became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions. He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.
