Real Madrid and France forward Karim Benzema has emerged the 2022 men’s Ballon d’Or winner ahead of other nominees.

Benzema recently led the routing of harsh rivals Barcelona during the famous el-Classico fixture over the weekend and also played a pivotal role in Real Madrid’s 14th Champions League title last season.

Following the snubbing of Robert Lewandoski last year despite his stellar year, the rules were changed.

France Football confirmed that player performances from the season and not the calendar year would be considered, while media voters would be restricted to the top 100 countries in the Fifa rankings for men and the top 50 nations from the women’s rankings.
