By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, world renowned football player Lionel Messi won a record eight Ballon d’Or.

Messi’s collection spans from winning in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019, 2021, and now 2023.

Messi fulfilled his life’s ambition by leading Argentina to the World Cup title in Qatar last year.

The 36-year-old football star was recognised at the ceremony in Paris.

“It’s nice to be here once more to enjoy this moment,” Messi said.

“To be able to win the World Cup and achieve my dream. I couldn’t imagine having the career I’ve had and everything I’ve achieved, the fortune I’ve had to be part of the best team in history,” Messi added.

“All of them [Ballon d’Or awards] are special for different reasons,” he expressed.

The Ballon d’Or recognises the best footballer of the year and is voted for by 100 journalists from around the world.

Messi also played a key role as Inter Miami won their first trophy – the Leagues Cup – and has scored 11 goals in 14 appearances for the Major League Soccer side.
