Luka Modrić has won the Ballon d’Or at the 2018 ceremony in Paris, ending the continual awards to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over the last ten years.

The 33-year-old midfielder guided Croatia to a World Cup final in the summer after winning the Champions League with Real Madrid in May.

However, many fans vented their frustration on social media that the prize had not gone to one of the former favourites.

There was also uproar when presenter Martin Solveig asked Women’s Ballon d’Or Ada Hegerberg if she knew how to twerk.

Luka Modric went from one of the most underrated players in the world to one of the most overrated players in the world in just a few months.
