Eden Hazard Presented Award By Chelsea Teammates

It looks as if Chelsea's current crop of first teamers has a bit of a sense of humor. This week, the Ballon d'Or was awarded to Real Madrid's Ronaldo after the Portuguese international put in an incredible shift for both club and country in 2013.

FIFA displayed fantastic transparency in the voting process for the prestigious award, publishing all the votes and where they came from. Way down near the bottom of the list for total votes was none other than Chelsea's in-form star Eden Hazard. The Belgian international has enjoyed an excellent couple of weeks for the Blues and continues scoring and being incredibly influential in Jose Mourinho's attack.

Not to be outdone by the real award going to Ronaldo, Hazard's Chelsea teammates awarded the Belgian with a wooden replica of the Ballon D'Or complete with the team's signatures.

Hazard posted a photo of his new trophy on Instagram with the following caption: Its not ballon d'or for me its ballon wood. Hahahaha
