CR7 lifts Ballon d'Or boycott

13 December 2013 [17:20] - TODAY.AZ
The Ballon d'Or awards ceremony will take place on 13th January in Zurich and Cristiano Ronaldo will be there, according to reports by 'El Partido de las 12' on 'Cadena Cope'.

According to the broadcaster, Real Madrid has already informed FIFA via a telephone conversation.

Ronaldo's presence at the ceremony began to look less likely after Blatter's performance in front of a group of Oxford University students, when the FIFA president likened CR7 to a commander on the field of play.

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the favourite to win the award, which is also being contested by Messi and Ribery.

However, Real Madrid assures that the Portuguese player will not only be present in the Swiss city just because he is the best-placed candidate to win his second Ballon d'Or.
