Leaked pictures of a new pair of Nike boots have suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo will win his fifth Ballon d'Or next week.
Pictures shared on Instagram show the words 'Quinto Triumfo', or 'fifth triumph' inscribed on the boots.
The boots also include the numbers 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016 - the years Ronaldo has previously won the award - as well as 2017, implying he is in line for another trophy.
France Football will announce the winner of the 2017 Ballon d'Or on Thursday afternoon.

Ronaldo became the first ever player to score in all six games in a Champions League group stage with his goal against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, and was recently named Fifa Player of the Year at an award ceremony in London.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is confident Ronaldo will win the award.

"Ronaldo is one of our great symbols," he said.
"He is the leading goalscorer in our history. A few days ago, he won his second "The Best" and this week he is going to win his fifth Ballon d'Or."
