Cristiano Ronaldo is favourite to win Fifa's Ballon d'Or award ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Franck Ribery and Lionel Messi.

High and mighty: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is very confident in his own ability
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Cristiano Ronaldo and Franck Ribery they can have the Ballon d'Or because "I know I am the best".
