PV Sports Desk : Lionel Messi celebrated winning his sixth Ballon d’Or with a hat-trick as Barcelona beat Mallorca to move top of La Liga.

He scored two excellent finishes from outside the box before smashing in a third off the underside of the crossbar.

Antoine Griezmann had opened the scoring for Barca, with Luis Suarez netting an outrageous backheel.

Ante Budimir scored twice for struggling Mallorca.

Messi showed off his Ballon d’Or trophy – awarded to the best player in the world – to the Nou Camp crowd before kick-off, with his family on the pitch alongside him.
