Croatia midfielder Luka Modric accepted the Golden Ball award as the best player at the World Cup after his side lost to France 4-2 in Sunday's final.

Belgium's Eden Hazard was awarded the Silver Ball as runner-up and France's Antoine Griezmann was given the Bronze Ball.

France's 19-year-old star Kylian Mbappe was named the tournament's best Young Player after scoring Les Bleus' fourth goal in the final.

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won the Golden Glove as the best goalkeeper for helping his team to a third-place finish.
