Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski has been named the Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year for the second time in a row.
Lewandowski - who claimed the 2020 award after becoming the first player to win and top score in each of the Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League and DFB Cup, with a combined 55 goals - beat off competition from Ballon d'Or holder Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.
"Thank you I am very honoured to win this trophy," Lewandowski said after learning he'd retained the accolade. "I feel very proud. This belongs to my teammates and coaches. I say thank you to Gerd Muller, the next step was to try and break that record."
The Poland striker broke the Bundesliga record for most goals in a single season in 2020/21 (41), and set a new gold standard for calendar year goals (43).
Twenty matches into the current Bundesliga campaign, he has a league-leading 23 strikes to his name - just one fewer than at the same juncture last term - and on Saturday became only the second player in history - after the late Gerd Müller - to reach 300 goals in the German top flight.
