Lionel Messi
Arguably the world's best footballer, Messi has won the top individual award in football, the FIFA Ballon d'Or, a record four times. His meteoric rise has seen records tumble, including Gerd Muller's long-standing record of goals scored in a calendar year which Messi broke in 2012. He has won every domestic crown possible with Barcelona as well as an Olympic Gold medal with Argentina.
