Leeds United player wins the Fallon d'Floor for 2014's best dive

Although all eyes were on Fifa's coveted Ballon d'Or ceremony last night, the award we've all been waiting for is finally here.

Leeds United's on-loan midfielder Adryan Oliveira Tavares has won the inaugural "Fallon d'Floor" for the most outrageous dive of 2014 after garnering 32 per cent of a public vote.

Adryan's dive, dubbed "Fish out of Water" by the website that set up the award, beat a joint effort from Giancarlo Gonzalez and Chris Wondolowski in the MLS and one from Ballon d'Or winner (the real one) Cristiano Ronaldo.
