Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao is calm about his Ballon d'Or chances.

Falcao is regarded as a good outside bet for the gong.

"I am very calm because I know I'm doing well, I'm having a lot of success internationally and competing at a high level with Atletico," he said.

"I know there's other players of a different nationality who have a better chance. But I'll keep playing my best."
