The winner of the 2017 Ballon d'Or has been declared, according to a picture 'leaked' on social media.
It's suggested Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi will pip Cristiano Ronaldo to the trophy next month.
Messi, who has claimed the trophy five times already, is second favourite with bookmakers to land the award on December 7.
However, a supposed front cover of France Football, the French magazine who have long been in charge of the award, appears to show Messi as the victor.
The person who tweeted it said: "Surprise Surprise ... Messi will win the D'Or Ball according to this cover .. It will be true? What is your opinion?."
