Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has won Africa’s top football honour, beating four-time winner Ivorian Yaya Toure and Ghana’s Andre Ayew to the 2015 Caf African Footballer of the Year award at a ceremony in Abuja, Nigeria on Thursday.

The 26-year-old polled 143 points, seven more than Toure whilst Ayew finished a distant third with 112 points to claim the prize for the first time, capping a season where he has put up stellar performances for his Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund.

He becomes the first player from the German league to win the award having finished as runner-up in the 2014 edition staged in Lagos.
