The award has only been open to male footballers until now, but a female equivalent will now be presented at France Football's awards ceremony on December 3 in Paris.

"It is a step forward, women's football is evolving and inequality is shrinking even though there is still room for improvement," France and Olympique Lyonnais defender Wendie Renard told the magazine.

"I've always wanted to see a woman win this prestigious award," Brazil's Marta added.

The Ballon d'Or award was partnered with FIFA from 2010 to 2015, when it became its own entity once again.

The sport's world governing body will pay tribute to the world's best players at its Best FIFA Football Awards on Monday.

FIFA, which hands out end-of-year awards, already gives a trophy to who they consider being the best female footballer.

Lieke Martens, the Barcelona and Netherlands midfielder, won in 2017.

France Football, the magazine responsible for handing out the award, gave the first Ballon d'Or to English footballer Sir Stanley Matthews in 1956.

The magazine is also launching an award for the best young player of the year, which will be named after Raymond Kopa - the first French Ballon d'Or winner who passed away last year.
