These were the best jokes as the 2016 Ballon d’Or ceremony saw Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo win the award for a fourth time.

Despite France Football taking complete control of the presentation after their collaboration with FIFA came to an end, the event was managed in the same tedious style with results released slowly throughout Monday evening.

The usual suspects took first and second place, with Ronaldo beating Lionel Messi to the crown after winning Euro 2016 with Portugal as well as the Champions League with his club.

Stars of Leicester City’s title-winning campaign Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy also featured in the top ten.

Relive the countdown once again with this selection of the best 2016 Ballon d’Or jokes:

Excited to see Cristiano Ronaldo win the Ballon d'Or for standing on the touchline and shouting 'VAMOS' in the Euro 2016 final. 👏🏼👏🏼

Messi is the greatest of all time.

Cristiano isn't even the greatest Ronaldo of all time.

Leicester fans saying Vardy should be up for the Ballon d'Or? Funny that cos at the Stadium of Light he couldn't hit a Baan d'Or.

Jamie Vardy finished 8th in #ballondor2016 ! Mahrez 7th, Bale 6th.
Not sure who got 5th but Arsenal got 4th again.

Don't let Ronaldo winning the ballon d'or today distract you from the fact that Lionel Messi blew a 3-1 ballon d'or lead

Goals in the SPL 2016/2017

Scott Sinclair = 10

Cristiano Ronaldo = 0

It's clear the Balon d'Or is a massive fix!

In my ideal world Messi & Ronaldo send eachother nice texts when they win awards & laugh at how angry people get arguing over who's better.
