Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is delighted for Cristiano Ronaldo after he was awarded the Ballon d'Or. Perez says Ronaldo deserved the gong.

He said: "Justice has been done because he's the best player in the world. He's an example for everybody. We Real Madrid fans are very happy and it's a special day for us all. When the best player is chosen once a year, it's an honour to have him in our team.

"I don't want to exaggerate, but this is not just about the Ballon d'Or but also about recognition for a leader in football who always want to achieve more and who represents the values that we Real Madrid fans always defend and that is very exciting."
