Is Ronaldo really the best?

So, Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer in the world.

At least according to his fellow pros at the international players' union, FIFPro. The union's annual poll results were announced this week, and the Portuguese star came out on top.

Ronaldo also featured in the short list for the Ballon D'Or, released last week, and was tipped by last year's winner, Brazilian star Kaka to take that accolade as well.

But, as Manchester United continue to stumble domestically, and Ronaldo himself looks a little out of shape, we can't help wondering if he really is better than the likes of Fernando Torres, Lionel Messi or Kaka?

What do you think? Does the Portuguese wonder still have it? Or is there someone else who should be taking all the game's top prizes?
