'Gods among men' - Twitter reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo's fourth Ballon d'Or

The Portugal international raised no eyebrows in taking the award once again, but there was plenty of debate over whether he really deserved to be honoured

It's official: Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned the latest winner of France Football's prestigious Ballon d'Or title for the fourth time in his career. 

There was little doubt over who would be crowned in 2016, a year in which the star led Real Madrid to their 11th Champions League title and also won Euro 2016 with Portugal. 

But inevitably, the decision sparked a vibrant debate on Twitter, with social media users flocking to pass judgement on the new Ballon d'Or holder.
