The 35-year-old, who has won domestic league titles in Spain, England and Italy and Euro 2016 with Portugal, admitted his pride at receiving the accolade, given to the player judged the best between 2001 and 2020.

“It’s a pleasure to win titles,” said Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, at the event. 

“It’s not easy to be top of the game for so many years. I am really proud, but without a team, great coaches and clubs it is not possible.” 

Ronaldo would also respond on Twitter, saying: “Couldn’t be happier with tonight’s award! As I’m about to celebrate my 20th year as a professional footballer, Globe Soccer Player Of The Century is a recognition that I receive with so much joy and pride!”

The Globe Soccer Awards, founded in 2010, acknowledge excellence in football with an annual gala dinner and awards ceremony.
