Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi has added one more to his list of accolades. The Argentine forward beat Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, British Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, top Korean golfer Lydia Ko, and Real Madrid goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo to win the 2015 ESPY Award for the Best International Athlete. 
The 2015 edition of the award which is presented annually by the American sports media giant ESPN was held on Wednesday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Messi once scooped the prize in 2012. Other previous winners include the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, the Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer, and the power-hitting Dominican Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals.
