Barcelona's Lionel Messi has won the acclaimed Ballon d'Or award for the European Footballer of the Year.
French magazine France Football said the 22-year-old Argentine beat 2008 winner Cristiano Ronaldo into second by a massive margin - 473 points to 233.
Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard were eighth and 10th respectively.
The award is decided by a poll of world football journalists from a shortlist of 30 players.
Third and fourth place in the voting were Messi's Barcelona team-mates, midfielders Xavi (170 points) and Andres Iniesta (149).
Striker Samuel Eto'o, who left Barcelona for Inter Milan during the close-season, was fifth.
Messi played a key role as Barca won the treble of Champions League, domestic league and cup last season.
