Barcelona - Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been presented with his second Golden Boot award in recognition for scoring the most goals in Europe's domestic leagues last season.

The 25-year-old Messi scored a Spanish-league record 50 goals for Barcelona, edging out fellow Spanish league star Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid by four goals.

Messi dedicated the award to his team-mates, saying "it is a prize for scoring goals, but without my team-mates I couldn't have scored them."

The Argentina international won his first Golden Boot in 2010 for his 34 goals that helped Barcelona win the league title.

Messi is among the favourites to win the 2012 Ballon d'Or for the world's best player.
