Ballon d'Or 2020 cancelled due to coronavirus

The prestigious Ballon d’Or will not be awarded this year because the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the soccer season.

Awarded by France Football magazine, the Ballon d’Or has been given out every year since Stanley Matthews won the first one in 1956. Lionel Messi has won it a record six times - one more than longtime rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

For the first time since 1956, the Ballon d'Or will not be awarded to any player this year due to the break in football in 2020.
