The Ballon D'Or 2018 Votes Have Been 'Leaked' And The Results Are Very Surprising

The football award has been dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the past 10 years but it looks like that's all about to change as this year's voting results are leaked halfway through the process.

The prestigious Ballon d'Or 2018 will be awarded on December 3rd. The prize is awarded to the male footballer deemed to have played the best over the past year as voted for by football journalists. 

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have each won the award a record five times over the past ten years - with no other player getting a look in. After the excitement of this year's World Cup, however, it looks like that's about to change.
