Cristiano Ronaldo is set to receive EVEN MORE silverware tomorrow when he's named as FIFA's inaugural 'The Best' for his trophy laden 2016.

Ronaldo received the 2016 Ballon d'Or, his fourth award, after lifting the Champions League and European Championships last year and scoring his customary barrel load of goals along the way to help secure club and international success.

Now FIFA and France Football have gone their separate ways when it comes to deciding on who the greatest player in the world is, there are now two awards to be voted for, with FIFA's 'The Best' being named tomorrow and, unsurprisingly, the Real Madrid phenom has received the nod.

Marca are reporting that Ronaldo will lift the gong tomorrow during the award ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland. This will now mean that Ronaldo is finally one up on Lionel Messi, after trailing Barcelona's Argentinean superhero in the Ballon d'Or stakes for almost the entire duration of their professional rivalry.
