Christiano Ronaldo wasn't the only winner when his name was called out as the recipient of the 2013 Ballon d'Or. Back at the Real Madrid training ground in Valdebebas there was double joy for the first team physios that played a key role to his outstanding year of football.
According to Marca.com the Portuguese winger promised head physio, Pedro Chueca, and the rest of his team new cars after one of his many sessions on the table, if he won the prestigious award.
The two-time winner's gratitude was evident in his emotional speech at the ceremony, and it's highly doubtful he'll renege on his promise.
The only question now is to see just how grateful Ronaldo actually is...
Lads I wouldn't have done it without yas!
Really, I said that?!?
