Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are among the first 10 players to be shortlisted by France Football magazine for the 2018 Ballon d’Or.
He makes the list despite facing an allegation of rape by a woman he met in Las Vegas in 2009. He denies the accusation.
The Portuguese forward – who won his fifth Ballon d’Or in 2017 – is joined on the shortlist by his former Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale.
Ronaldo was among the second group of nominees, and is joined by Thibaut Courtois, Kevin De Bruyne, Roberto Firmino and Diego Godin.
