Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted attending the Marca Awards 2013 at Crystal Palace in Madrid, Spain on Monday morning (March 18). The Portuguese international showed up at the event to receive the Trofeo Di Stéfano for 2011-12 - Marca's annual prize for the best player in La Liga. “It’s an honour to receive this award from the hands of Alfredo Di Stéfano and I would like to thank everybody,” Cristiano Ronaldo said as he was handed the trophy by Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stéfano. The Portuguese player beat Leo Messi by five votes in the final count to win the award, which is jointly voted for by Spanish sports newspaper Marca’s readers and by a panel of judges headed by Alfredo Di Stéfano himself. The prize also features a star lineup of Cruyff, Zidane, Hierro, Luis Suárez, Capello and more. Dressed in a maroon satin tuxedo jacket and faded blue jeans, the love affair Ronaldo looked handsome as he posed with his award at the event. The Real Madrid star accessorized his ensemble with a crisp white shirt, completing the appearance with his favourite Gucci belt and smart pointy black shoes. Cristiano Ronaldo also unveiled a new hairstyle with wet-look locks and bizarre shaved stripe along one side of his head at the ceremony.
