Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo may have won the Ballon D'or on Monday, but the victory has come at a price: he will now have to buy his club's physiotherapists a new car of their choice.

Ronaldo was so overcome when he was presented with the prestigious prize in Zurich that he wept before the cameras.

After watching his rival Leo Messi claim the Ballon D'or for four consecutive years, Ronaldo's relief was palpable.

But the Real Madrid forward wasn't the only celebrating: the club physios were too.

Before Ronaldo had made them a promise: if he won the award he would buy them all a car of their choice as a thanks for all their hard work in keeping him match fit.

That's according to Spain's Marca sports daily, who also say CR7 is a man of his word. He will now have to put his money where his mouth is.
