The Polish striker won the inaugural trophy at the award ceremony in Paris.
Lewandowski broke a Bundesliga record of 41 goals in just 29 games last season to eclipse the long-standing mark set by the late German Gerd Mueller.
The 33-year old striker scooped FIFA’s prize for best male player of 2020.
While receiving the award, the player said, “I’m very proud of this trophy, I know what it means to be ready to score the goal. Everything I do I have to thank my teammates, coach, and staff. Without them, it’s difficult to be at the front.”
