Paris/UNI/Sputnik: FC Bayern Munich and Polish forward Robert Lewandowski was named Striker of the Year at the Ballon d'Or Awards ceremony.

The 33-year-old won the award at the ceremony held in Paris on Monday after having accomplished a new single season Bundesliga netting record of 41 goals.

Paris Saint-Germain F.C forward Messi paid tribute to Lewandowski when he received the trophy.

"It's an honour to be here with you today. You broke records and you would have deserved to win the Ballon d'Or. You had an unbelievable year," he said.
