"Good evening. I have no words to describe this moment. Thank you to all my teammates from Real Madrid and the Portuguese National Team, as well as to all my family present here today. It’s an enormous [honor]! Those who know me are well aware of the sacrifices I’ve [made] to win this Ballon d’Or.
I would like to thank my manager, my president and everyone else that came here today. I would also like to remember the names of Eusébio and Nelson Mandela, who have been truly important in my life. Also my girlfriend, my mother and my son that [are] here with me. It’s the first time he sees his father receiving the FIFA Ballon d’Or. I’m sorry if I forgot someone, but it’s a very emotional moment for me and I can’t talk much more. Thank you all!” — Cristiano Ronaldo, 2013 Ballon d’Or winner
