Euro 2016 star Antoine Griezmann was named French footballer of the year by France Football magazine on Monday.

A week ago, the Atletico Madrid forward finished third behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the Ballon d'Or world footballer of the year award also organised by France Football.

The 25-year-old was named best player and took top goalscorer honours at the Euros in the summer, where France lost the final on home soil to Ronaldo's Portugal.

Griezmann was also named best player in Spain's La Liga last season but lost another final to Ronaldo as Real Madrid beat city rivals Atletico to lift the Champions League in May. (supersport.com)
