The Brazilian star was already honoured by the “America and Europe respond to El País” poll – which started in 1986 – on three other occasions, although as ‘The King of Europe’ for his performances at Barcelona between 2004 and 2006.
Ronaldinho, currently at Atlético Mineiro received 156 votes, ahead of Brazilian Neymar – crowned King of the Americas for the past two years – with 81 votes and Argentina’s Maximiliano Rodríguez with 79.

Firefighters were forced to use heavy lifting gear to move Britain's fattest woman, who died weighing 40 stone, after paramedics were unable to lift her body from her family home.
Rita Atkinson, 65, of Hellifield, North Yorkshire, died earlier last month at the bungalow she shared with her husband Roy, 64.
Paramedics found they could not move her body from the house and called North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service to assist with specialist equipment.
Firefighters used strops - heavy duty lifting straps commonly used by haulage companies - to take the housebound mother-of-one to a mortuary.
And after finding out she wouldn't fit into a mortuary fridge, firefighters helped paramedics move her to one with double fridges and a WINCH to lift her.
A fire service spokesman said: We assisted the ambulance service and the undertaker to move a deceased patient using strops and manpower.
