Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was named the 2017 Best FIFA Men's Coach of the Year at a ceremony at the London Palladium theatre on Monday.

The Frenchman received the award after guiding Real to both Spain's La Liga title and Europe's Champions League trophy last season.

Former France star Zidane was the first coach to oversee a successful defence of the European Cup in the Champions League era.

Meanwhile, Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud's 'scorpion kick' goal against Crystal Palace in January received the Puskas award for the goal of the year at the Best FIFA football awards in London on Monday.

Also being recognized was Cristiano Ronaldo who was named the 2017 Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year on Monday.

The Portuguese forward, who won last year's inaugural award, fired Real Madrid to the La Liga title and scored 12 goals as the Spanish giants won the Champions League.
