Madrid - The world's leading sports media on Tuesday praised the figure of Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi, after receiving in Paris, France, the sixth Ballon d'Or, or Golden Ball, of his career.
The forward of Spanish club FC Barcelona received the award before the attentive gaze of the entire football world: 'I have never stopped dreaming and enjoying football like when I was a child,' said the South American star after receiving the prize from the hands of Croatian player Luka Modric of Real Madrid.
'Messix' was the title used by Spanish site Mundo Deportivo to report on the past 10 years since the Barcelona captain received this award for the first time. 'The Best, the Golden Shoe and the Golden Ball are his,' it added.
'Football has only one God,' wrote the daily Sport, while As opened the day with 'M6SSI' and filled its pages with quotes from the Argentinian star in the gala staged at the Chatelet Theater in the French capital.
With the title 'History belongs to him,' Marca, another Spanish publication, placed six images of the moments in which Messi has received the prize during his career, and noted the absence of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi beat Dutch player Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool, and Ronaldo of Juventus, while Senegalese striker Sadio Mané, who also plays for Liverpool, finished fourth.
'I would like to thank the journalists, who voted me to have this prize. Of course, thank you so much to my colleagues both club and country, who have contributed to this amazing prize,' Messi said at the gala, who was accompanied by his wife and two children.
