Luka Modric was named Uefa's men's player of the season while Wolfsburg's Pernille Harder won the women's player of the year award at the star-studded event held in the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.

13-time European champions Real Madrid swept the individual positional prizes too, with the since-deposed Keylor Navas picking up goalkeeper of the year, captain Sergio Ramos named defender of the year and Modric, who received the overall prize from Uefa president Alexander Ceferin, unsurprisingly winning the midfielder award.
