The Ballon d’Or has grown to become the most prestigious individual award in football.
Not bad for a gong that, before 1995, was just for the best European player and whose title – if we recall our French lessons – is the ‘Balloon of Orbs’. Strange name for a football award, really, but still better than FIFA’s unimaginative ‘The Best’.
