Cristiano Ronaldo received the Golden Foot Award, while Andrea Agnelli has been honoured with the first Golden Foot Prestige.
Ronaldo was proclaimed Golden Foot winner on December 1 and received the award in the Principality of Monaco today.
By regulation, a player can receive the Golden Foot Award only once in his career. Ronaldo received the prize behind closed doors, due to the health emergency.
The Portuguese star left his footprints which will be exhibited in the iconic “Champions Promenade” in Monte Carlo.

“Receiving this award is an honour, I am happy that my footprints will be close to those of other great champions and I thank all the public who voted for me. I will always do my best to play well and score goals,” said Ronaldo.
Andrea Agnelli was also honoured with the first Golden Foot Prestige award that was also announced on December 1.
The award is a career honour dedicated exclusively to a President still in business.
Prince Albert II of Monaco congratulated the winners with a video message: “It will be an honour for the Principality of Monaco to have the footprints of a champion such as Cristiano Ronaldo and of the President of Juventus Football Club, Andrea Agnelli in the new The Champions Promenade,” he said. The award was presented by Louis Ducruet, son of Princess Stephanie of Monaco.
