FOOTBALL- Barcelona star Lionel Messi added another first to his long list of accolades as he became the first player to win Europe's Golden Shoe award for three straight years.

Golden Show is awarded to the leading scorer in league matches in Europe's top divisions.

Messi had earlier said on Friday, “I haven’t been thinking about the prize at all, we are still coping with what happened against Liverpool and I am not thinking about personal awards.”

Messi’s nearest rival was Paris Saint Germain’s Kylian Mbappe but he ended his campaign with 33 goals against Messi’s 36 goals.
