Robert Lewandowski, on Thursday, won the FIFA Best Men's Player Award in a virtual ceremony beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Polish forward was, without doubt, the best scorer last season scoring 55 goals in 47 appearances for Bayern Munich, as they swept a Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and Champions League treble; with Lewandowski as the top scorer in all three competitions.
Lewandowski was the firm favourite to win the coveted Ballan d'Or this year before it was cancelled due to the pandemic.
"I feel fantastic," Lewandowski said. "I am very proud and happy, to be honest, this is a great day for me, and also for my club and colleagues. This award also belongs to my colleagues, the coach and Bayern Munich in general. It is an incredible feeling, a lot of emotions."
"If you win such an award and share that title with Messi and Ronaldo, that is unbelievable, and it means so much to me. A long time ago, I remember I was longing for something like this, and now I can win such an award. This means, regardless of where you come from, all that matters is what you put into it," he added.
