Six things you missed from Ballon d'Or awards including awkward Erling Haaland moment and embarrassing error

Six things you missed from Ballon d'Or awards including awkward Erling Haaland moment and embarrassing error

Six things you missed.

The Ballon d'Or awards ceremony took place in the Theatre du Chatelet, Paris last night, with Lionel Messi and Aitana Bonmati scooping the top prizes.

Messi was named men's Ballon d'Or winner for a record-extending eighth time, defeating competition from the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

And Bonmati was named as the women's Ballon d'Or winner for the first time after an incredible past 12 months with Barcelona and Spain.

The midfielder won the Champions League and Liga F crowns with Barca, before lifting the World Cup as a key player in a young Spain side.

Here are six things you may have missed from the rest of the ceremony.

Erling Haaland in awkward exchange with iShowSpeed

Social media star iShowSpeed live streamed the ceremony on YouTube, having been invited to attend by organisers France Football.

He met some of the stars, had a picture taken with Pele's daughter and even got emotional when Cristiano Ronaldo didn't win the men's Ballon d'Or award.

But another moment came when he met Manchester City star Haaland, who told him: "What's with the shoes, man?" Brutal.

Jude Bellingham praised by Gary Lineker

Prior to winning the Kopa Trophy for best young player, Jude Bellingham was praised by England legend Gary Lineker - who would later present the Gerd Muller Trophy to Haaland for most goals in Europe.

Lineker claimed that the 20-year-old would be a Ballon d'Or winner within five years.

Bellingham's response? "That's nice of him, but for me it's all about the team awards. Yeah, this is something you dream of as a kid."

Camera pans to Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen during Bellingham El Clasico debate

Speaking of Bellingham, there was a discussion on stage about his late double that secured a 2-1 win for Real Madrid in El Clasico on Saturday.

Rather awkwardly, the camera panned to Marc-Andre ter Stegen - the Barcelona goalkeeper who let both goals - as the discussion went on.

Kylian Mbappe enters alone

Prior to the ceremony, the nominated players for the men's and women's awards were invited up to the stage in pairs.

But due to players not being present in-person in Paris, there was an odd number - meaning one player had to walk out alone.

That player was Kylian Mbappe, who the last person to enter the Theatre du Chatelet stage.

Bonmati's missing trophy

After winning the women's Ballon d'Or award, Aitana Bonmati should have been presented her trophy by guest presenter Novak Djokovic.

But the trophy did not make it on stage in time for the presentation, meaning the organisers had to rush to get it ready for when Bonmati was speaking.

Kylian Mbappe congratulates Lionel Messi

After the ceremony concluded, Mbappe headed to Instagram to congratulate former PSG team-mate Messi on his latest Ballon d'Or success.

In his story, he told the Inter Miami star: "Congratulations Leo on your award. You deserve it."
