Robert Lewandowski has won the best men’s player at the 2020 Best Fifa Football Awards, beating last year’s winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the top prize.
The Poland forward was without equal in the 2019-20 season, scoring 55 goals in 47 appearances as Bayern swept to a Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB-Pokal treble – with Lewandowski the top scorer in all three competitions.
“If you win such an award and share that title with Messi and Ronaldo, that is unbelievable and it means so much to me,” Lewandowski said.
“A long time ago, I remember I was longing for something like this and now I can win such and award. This really means, regardless of where you come form, all that matters is what you put into it.”
The 32-year-old has continued his stunning form into the new season and, on Wednesday, scored his 250th goal in the Bundesliga to help Bayern to an important win.
Manchester City defender Lucy Bronze won the best women’s player award.
The winners were decided by nominations from national team captains and head coaches, an online ballot of fans and 200 media representatives.
