The award caps off what has been a memorable year for the former Manchester United man.

On the pitch, he helped Madrid to win La Liga and retain the Champions League.

Meanwhile, away from the turf he became a father again on June 8 when he welcomed little girl-boy twins named Eva Maria and Mateo into the world.

And then Rodriguez gave birth to little girl Alana Martina on November 12.
