Prince Albert of Monaco presented the award to Roberto Carlos, the winner of the 2008 Golden Foot award for active players. The 35-year-old Brazilian, now with the Turkish club Fenerbache, won 38,384 votes in an internet survey.

Zidane, who defeated a Brazilian side featuring Roberto Carlos to win the 1998 World Cup final and played alongside him at Real Madrid, was recognized with three other players who are now retired. The 36 year-old Frenchman became famous at Juventus and is a three-time FIFA player of the year.
