Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has won the Best FIFA Men's player award for 2020.

The Polish striker had a remarkable season in 2019/20, scoring 55 goals and creating 10 assists in just 47 games in all competitions.

Lewandowski also helped his Bayern side win a historic treble, as they won the German Bundesliga and DFB Pokal, as well as the UEFA Champions League.

In a final that pitted the striker against previous winners Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Barcelona's Lionel Messi, it seems Lewandowski was awarded the title after a tremendous campaign on an individual level, as well as being part of a team that beat all before them.

"This is a big day for me and my club," said Lewandowski after being nominated for the first time in his career.

"I have to say thank you. This prize also belongs to my teammates at Bayern and the national team."

"Winning a prize like this in the era with Messi and Ronaldo means so much and is an incredible feeling.

"It shows that no matter where you are from, or what your name is, in the end it comes down to your performance. We won everything there was to win."
