The Polish marksman won the annual European Golden Shoe award miles ahead of the rest of the pack.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi finished No. 2 in the race for the top scorer of the 2020/2021 season, with 30 goals, ahead of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, in third place with 29 strikes for Italian side Juventus.

The Poland international was at the weekend crowned the top scorer of Germany's Bundesliga premier league for the 2020/2021 season, his sixth such trophy since he began playing in Germany in 2010.

The 32-year-old, who also captains Poland’s national squad, in December won FIFA’s 2020 Best Men’s Player award, beating Ronaldo and Messi.

Lewandowski was named Player of the Year at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai in late December.
