The Ballon d'Or presentation for this year takes place on November 29 after last year's ceremony was cancelled due to Covid-19.

Barcelona legend Lionel Messi beat Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to claim a record sixth Ballon d'Or in 2019.

He's also in the running to win a seventh award, but - according to a leaked post on social media, the 34-year-old will NOT win the prize this year.

Again, per the leaked sheet, it has Robert Lewandowski as the Ballon d'Or 2021 winner ahead of the aforementioned Messi and Karim Benzema.

The Polish international is one of the betting favourites to win the award following a prolific spell at Bayern Munich.

He bagged an incredible 41 Bundesliga goals last season and already has 17 goals in all competitions to his name this campaign.

The viral post on Twitter has Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah in fourth place while Chelsea and Italy midfielder Jorginho comes in at fifth.

Kylian Mbappe, N'Golo Kante, Erling Haaland, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne make up the top ten.

The leaked sheet also features the likes of Harry Kane, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Romelu Lukaku and Neymar, among others.

Messi, meanwhile, is considered by fans to be the outright favourite to win a seventh Ballon d'Or.
