Luka Modric was crowned as the best player of the year at the awards ceremony in London

Luka Modric was named the world's best male player at the Best Fifa Football Awards in London.

The Real Madrid midfielder, 33, beat former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, now with Juventus, and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah to the award.

Modric won his third Champions League title in a row in May and guided Croatia to their first World Cup final in July.

Highlights of tonight's ceremony will be on BBC One at 22:45 BST.

Brazil and Orlando Pride forward Marta won the best female player award, while France's Didier Deschamps - whose side beat Modric's Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final - was named best men's coach.

Salah received the Puskas award for the best goal, for his effort against Everton in the Premier League at Anfield last December.
