Guillem wins Football Book of the Year Award

Cross Sports Book Awards winners announced June 2, 2016

Sky Sports Guillem Balague and Ronda Rousey both collected awards at the Cross Sports Book Awards as winners across 10 categories were announced. Ronaldo and My Fight, Your Fight won Barclays Football Book of the Year and Cross International Autobiography of the Year respectively. The ceremony, which took place at Lord’s on June 1, capped a successful week for the Real Madrid forward following his nail-biting win in the Champions League on Saturday. Balague’s behind-the- scenes biography charts Ronaldo’s career from a young winger at Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United before his £80m record-breaking transfer in 2009.
