Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the Fifa World Player of the Year for 2008 during a glittering awards ceremony in Zurich.

The Portuguese superstar sees his achievements from the 2007/08 season rewarded with football's most prestigious individual honour.

He has already claimed the FIFPro World Player of the Year title and the highly-regarded Ballon d'Or crown, but has now added the top prize to his ever-growing roll of honour.

Ronaldo scored an incredible 42 goals for Sir Alex Ferguson's men last term, helping them to Premier League and UEFA Champions League glory.

The 23-year-old becomes the first player from the English top-flight to take the award and succeeds AC Milan playmaker Kaka as the best player on the planet.

Ronaldo also emulates the achievement of his countryman Luis Figo who took the prize in 2001.

Meanwhile, Brazil international Marta was named Fifa Women's World Player of the Year.,19528,11095_4785440,00.html?20090112205423
