    On the 24th of December 1989, Alfredo Di Stéfano was awarded an honorary
    Ballon d’Or. This was how France Football showed their appreciation of the
    wonderful career of the Real Madrid legend. Considered to be one of the
    greatest players in history, he amazed the world by leading Real Madrid to
    victory in the first five consecutive European Cups and, during his playing
    career, he won the Ballon d’Or in 1957 and 1959.
    The magazine France Football decided to give this award to recognize the
    best player in European football since the creation of the Ballon d’Or
    prize, and Di Stéfano was eventually chosen ahead of Cruyff and Platini.
