On Monday evening, the roads leading to the Theatre Du Chatelet, the site of the 2021 Ballon D'or Trophy ceremony, were congested as France Football announced the winner of the prestigious award.
Due to their impressive performances for their club and country this year, Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi were the real contenders for the highest individual honor in football, but it was Lionel Messi who won the award for a World record 8th time at the expense of Bayern Munich and Poland forward Robert Lewandowski.
On Monday evening, Paris, the French capital, welcomed many football royalty, but the event wasn't just about football players.
Tom Holland, a well-known superhero actor best known for his role in Marvel Studios' Spiderman franchise, was also present at the ceremony.
