Barcelona star Messi admits surprise winning Ballon d’Or winner

Barcelona star Lionel Messi admits his FIFA Ballon d'Or victory last night took him by surprise.

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

He said: "To be honest, I didn't expect to win today, but it was already great to be here next to my two mates.

"To win it makes it even more special. I want to share with all of my friends, my family, all the Barcelonistas and the Argentinians."
