Lionel Messi wins Ballon Dor

Lionel Messi became the inaugural winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or at a glittering award ceremony in Zurich.

Argentina star Messi was selected ahead of Barcelona team-mates Xavi and Andres Iniesta, who both won the World Cup with Spain last summer.

Messi, 23, scored an astonishing 60 goals for club and country in 2010 and is regarded by many as the most gifted player of his generation.

Jose Mourinho was named the coach of the year beating Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola and World cup winning Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque.
