Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric said he was "happy, proud and honoured" after being named victor of the 2018 men's Ballon d'Or on Monday.

Modric, 33, helped Real Madrid win a third successive Champions League title in May and also captained Croatia to their first World Cup final, being named player of the tournament despite his side losing 4-2 to France.

"I said, I think last time when I won The Best, I would change all my individual awards for the World Cup, unfortunately it didn't happen", Modric told reporters.

Luka Modric has drawn further plaudits from the Spanish press on Tuesday after the Real Madrid midfielder won the Ballon d'Or.

Five years ago, the Dinamo Zagreb youth product was voted as the worst signing of the season in La Liga after a slow start to life in the Spanish capital.

Alongside the Ballon d'Or, the inaugural Trophee Kopa award was also handed out at the ceremony in Paris, with Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe scooping the award for best young player under the age of 21.

'It's hard to find the words to express how I feel, ' Modric said.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with French side Lyon and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.


Following her triumph, Solveig said, "You have seen that I prepared a little celebration for Kylian (Mbappe), so we said we are going to do something similar".

He claimed the award by ending the 10-year dominance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The pair were also nominated for this year's award in a 30-strong shortlist that also featured the likes of France's World Cup winners Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann and Modric's Croatian teammates Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic.

I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan.

French disc jockey Martin Solveig appeared to embarrass Hegerberg when he asked her if she would "twerk" after she collected the trophy. The suggestion clearly made Hegerberg uncomfortable.

Monday was a big day for many people in the football galaxy.

"Maybe in the past there were some players who could have won the Ballon d'Or like Xavi, [Andres] Iniesta or, I don't know, [Wesley] Sneijder, but it didn't happen". "It's all about how we respect women's football".
