The holding midfielder won the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 with Italy.

Lionel Messi took out his record seventh Ballon d'Or, ahead of Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho.

"I am very happy but I achieved this not by myself but with the help of the whole team," Jorginho told the club's website.

"So I'm just really grateful for that and I'm really happy and proud of myself and proud of the whole group and proud of this team because we deserve it, all together.

"I always say the first thing we need to think about is the group, the team. We need to put that at the front and then comes the individuals, so when we have an amazing group like this that works together, is really humble, always smiling, trying to help each other then of course the results come and you have awards."
