Lionel Messi has won the European Golden Shoe award as the continent's top scorer.

The Argentine superstar scored an incredible 50 league goals over the campaign, and finished the season four goals clear of nearest rival Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga.

Messi failed to find the net on Saturday, as Barcelona drew 2-2 with Real Betis, but he could not be caught by Ronaldo, who netted just the one as Real Madrid beat Malaga 4-1 on Sunday.
