Lionel Messi stole the show with his red tuxedo, but it was Cristiano Ronaldo who was the real winner. Ronaldo won the FIFA Ballon d'Or for 2013, which put an end to Messi's four-year run as the top soccer player in the world. 

As the image above shows, Ronaldo was a big winner. The female on the left, Antonella Roccuzzo, is actually Messi's girlfriend. 

The image is hilarious, but it has been altered.

Here's the real picture, via @Footy_Jokes:

Messi doesn't look as down in the real photo, but the photoshopped image certainly gets some laughs.
