Tottenham's and France star Hugo Lloris' Ballon d'Or votes revealed by FIFA

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

The way Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris voted in the Ballon d'Or has been revealed by FIFA.

FIFA have released the details of the Ballon d'Or voting in a new report.

Cristiano Ronaldo walked away with the top individual honour in football last night, the third time he has won the award and second in succession.

FIFA's report breaks down the voting from national countries' managers, captains, and one selected media member for every country belonging to the organisation.

Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris was one of the Premier League stars to have a chance to cast his vote, although he did not make the top three in the list of any voter himself. Here's how he picked his top trio...

1) Cristiano Ronaldo

2) Karim Benzema

3) Manuel Neuer

Ronaldo is little surprise, and nor is the selection of a fellow goalkeeper especially top candidate Manuel Neuer.

The big talking point in his selections is the inclusion of Karim Benzema - and exclusion of multiple time Ballon d'Or winner and overall runner-up Lionel Messi.

Lloris however knows Benzema well, an international teammate of his for France, and former colleague at Lyon.

Spurs fans may be concerned that his top two picks are Real Madrid stars, a club he was linked to by The Metro last November, but at least he didn't got for a full house and select former star Gareth Bale.

Bale was voted as the world's best player in the poll by Michael Mifsud, former Coventry City midfielder and captain of the Malta football team.
