Lionel Messi wins his eighth Ballon d'Or

The wait is over, and it is now official that Lionel Messi and Aitana Bonmati are the winners of the 2023 Ballon d'Ors. The Argentina and Inter Miami star took the men's prize home from Paris on Monday evening, while the Barcelona and Spain midfielder claimed the women's prize.

Despite being outscored by Erling Haaland last season, Messi's individual performances were aided greatly by his play in Qatar, and many predicted he would win the award.

Aitana Bonmati is officially the best female footballer in the world, and she took home the Ballon d'Or for 2023. The Barcelona midfielder enjoyed a spectacular year in which she also lifted the Women's World Cup with Spain. She won the Golden Ball for being the tournament's best player and scored 19 goals in 37 appearances for her club side.

With her club, Bonmati was key as Barcelona won honours domestically and won the Women's Champions League as well, coming from 2-0 behind in the final.
