Another award for Ronaldo

Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo has completed an awards double after being named the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year.
The 22-year-old Portugal international landed the Players' Player of the Year award last month after helping United move to the top of the Premiership table, reach the FA Cup Final and move into the last four of the Champions League, where they lost to AC Milan earlier this week.
Didier Drogba was second once again, as he had been in the players' vote, while Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes were third and fourth respectively.
"Cristiano was a runaway winner, and deservedly so," said Paul Hetherington, chairman of the FWA.
"After the events of last summer at the World Cup, the vote of the Football Writers' Association shows that what we are all interested in, is honouring the best player in the country.
"There have been no agendas carried over from last summer."
Ronaldo has scored 22 goals in all competitions for United this term.
