Barcelona star Lionel Messi has congratulated Cristiano Ronaldo on winning the Ballon d'Or.

Messi had won four consecutive gongs before last night's award for the Real Madrid ace.

"I want to congratulate Cristiano because he was the winner and deservedly so. I think it was a good year for the three of us and that's why we were there. I have nothing to complain about or make any excuses," said the 26-year-old, who again caught the attention at the gala with his fashion choice as he wore a shiny burgundy three-piece suit.
