Chelsea ace Didier Drogba has been named African Footballer of the Year.

The Ivory Coast striker was handed his award in a ceremony in Accra, as he was voted the continent’s top player for 2009.

He held off competition from club team-mate Michael Essien, and also Inter Milan’s Cameroon star Samuel Eto’o.

It is the second time in his career the 32-year-old has won the honour, with the previous success coming in 2006.
