first_imgBy Julien Pretot PARIS, France (Reuters) – Cristiano Ronaldo capped a remarkable year by claiming a fourth Ballon d’Or award yesterday after leading Portugal to an emotional European Championship title and Real Madrid to a record-extending Champions League crown in 2016.Ronaldo is one short of the record tally of five awards won by Barcelona’s Argentina forward Lionel Messi, who was second with the pair having taken the first two spots since 2011.“For me it’s a great honour to receive my fourth golden ball. The emotion is like for the first one, it’s a dream come true again. I never thought to win four times. I’m so happy,” said Ronaldo, who won the award in 2008, 2013 and 2014.“It’s probably the best year of my career collectively, with Real Madrid and Portugal.“Real are used to winning titles while Portugal had never won a major title so this (Euro 2016) title is special. I don’t want to lack respect to the Champions League but the title with Portugal is a level above.”The Ballon d’Or, which merged with the FIFA World Player-of-the-Year award from 2010-15 to create the FIFA Ballon d’Or, returned to France Football magazine this year.A total of 173 journalists voted but not national team coaches and captains who were also polled for the FIFA award.CUT ABOVEFrance and Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, who lost to Ronaldo’s Portugal and Real in the Euro 2016 and Champions League finals respectively, took third place.Uruguay forward Luis Suarez was fourth and Brazil’s Neymar fifth, giving Barcelona three players in the top five.Ronaldo was a cut above the competition, though.He scored 51 goals in 54 games for club and country, albeit his lowest tally since 2008, claimed another Champions League winners’ medal and lifted the European Championship trophy.Ronaldo limped off midway the first half of July’s Euro 2016 final, which Portugal won 1-0 after extra time against hosts France, but he hobbled back onto the pitch to celebrate his country’s first major football title.Six weeks earlier, after a fairly anonymous performance against local rivals Atletico in the Champions League final, he scored the decisive penalty in the shootout to hand Real their 11th European Cup.It was, therefore, hard to see past 31-year-old Ronaldo for the winner of the Ballon d’Or, even if the trophy is designed to reward individual performance rather than team results.last_img read more

first_img– says incident yet another reason for establishment of ERCThe Indian Action Committee (IAC) has said it has taken note of the media reports of alleged racial utterances purportedly attributed to the President’s Press Officer, Lloyda Nicholas-Garrett.“Given the uneasiness that such alleged comments can precipitate and the negative impact it can have on the fragile fabric of social harmony, the IAC reiterates it’s another reason for the urgent establishment of the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC),” the IAC said in a statement.Public Information and Press Services Officer Lloyda Nicholas-GarrettThe IAC, while welcoming the investigation reportedly launched into the incident, said it was gravely concerned given what was in the public domain. It, therefore, urged that the investigation be conducted thoroughly, unhindered, swiftly and its findings made public soonest, for such incidents can have national ramifications especially given its reported source.The IAC said it wished to unequivocally state its condemnation of anyone who resorts to the use of racial slurs and racial bashing in reference to and during engagements with others. “In addition, these alleged utterances unnecessarily bring to bear humiliation on those targeted,” it posited.The IAC said such actions have no place in society and have over time proven their potential in the sowing of discord. The IAC calls on all organisations to ensure its members, agents or representatives do not indulge in such actions, and they should be expelled if found responsible.The IAC believes that mixed messages were being sent through the alleged transgression by someone with direct access to the Head of State who established the Ministry of Social Cohesion with its mandate an administrative priority.The IAC also reminded that all, especially those who hold public offices, have a national responsibility not to engage in any activity or place comments in the public domain that threaten peace and harmony.last_img read more
