- Leaked Ronaldo boots shows he might have won the 2017 Ballon D'Or
- France Football will hand out the individual award on Thursday afternoon
- The boots show the dates he has won it already and also have this year inscribed
Nike have accidentally dropped a hint that Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d'Or on Thursday.
One set of boots – the Mercurial Superfly V Quinto Triunfo CR7 – even reads “fifth triumph” when translated from Portuguese.
That set are white and gold and also have the years Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or – 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016 – written inside them as well as 2017.
Ronaldo has also announced himself that he is releasing Air Force 1 CR7 trainers and the colour scheme of white and gold matches the new boots.
France Football, a French publication, will announce the winner of the Ballon d'Or on Thursday afternoon.
