In the previous vote by the digital media company, it was former AC Milan and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo who surprisingly took first place, but the Italian is just 10th in the latest standing.

Ahead of the aforementioned Pele are both Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho, while five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo is only in fourth place. His eternal rival Messi comes in at second on the list, behind his compatriot Diego Maradona.
