Bellingham wins Kopa Trophy for best young player

England and Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham has won the 2023 Kopa Trophy, given to the best young player under the age of 21, after a stunning start to life at Real Madrid.

Bellingham scored twice in Saturday's 2-1 El Clasico win at Barcelona, which included an incredible equaliser and a stoppage-time winner, to give him a goal-a-game record in his first 13 matches.

Bellingham moved to Real from Borussia Dortmund in June after the Spanish giants paid an initial £88.5m with the deal potentially rising to £115m - a record deal for a British player.

The transfer came after Bellingham impressed for England at last year's World Cup and came close to winning the Bundesliga title with Dortmund as they narrowly lost out to Bayern Munich on the final day.
