Tahitian Heimanu Taiarui has been named as the best player of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Portugal 2015 by the FIFA Technical Study Group, taking home the adidas Golden Ball for his pivotal role in his country's runner-up finish.
The adidas Golden Scorer award, meanwhile, will be making its way to South America, where it will be received by Paraguay's Pedro Moran. FIFA.com pays tribute to the duo and the rest of the award winners below.
adidas Golden Ball: Heimanu Taiarui (Tahiti)
Taiarui truly came into his own in his third Beach Soccer World Cup campaign. In addition to keeping a tight rein on opposition players, the 29-year-old defender showed plenty of personality to rouse his team-mates when the going got tough and also contributed four goals and six assists. All in all, he was one of the key figures in a Tahiti side that sparkled in Portugal, making him a logical choice for the accolade.
adidas Silver Ball: Alan (Portugal)
The veteran Portuguese wide man played a decisive part in the hosts' conquest of their first world crown. Age is clearly just a number for the 40-year-old, who scored five times and set up a further four. His evergreen performances were enough to earn him the adidas Silver Ball for the tournament's second-best player.
adidas Bronze Ball and adidas Silver Scorer: Madjer (Portugal)
Madjer was already unanimously considered one of the greatest players in beach soccer history before the event. Now, however, he has given himself an arguably unassailable place in the pantheon by capping his much-coveted first world title with the adidas Bronze Ball and adidas Silver Scorer awards. At the age of 38, the marksman fired Portugal to glory with eight goals, as well as providing the necessary leadership to help the team turn the pressure of playing at home into a positive force. Simply put, he was sensational.
adidas Golden Scorer: Pedro Moran (Paraguay)
After his exploits two years ago in Tahiti, Moran arrived in Portugal convinced he could feature among the top scorers. His faith proved well-founded: the 25-year-old Paraguayan pivot needed just three matches to find the back of the net eight times and scoop the adidas Golden Scorer accolade. The bicycle-kick specialist bagged two hat-tricks and a brace, beating off competition from Madjer and Noel Ott by virtue of having delivered an assist and taken fewer appearances to score his goals.
adidas Bronze Scorer: Noel Ott (Switzerland)
Despite being just 21, Ott was billed as one to watch at the competition and he certainly lived up to expectations. The pivot found the target in all four of Switzerland's games, chalking up a total of eight goals and leading his side's run to the quarter-finals.
adidas Golden Glove: Jonathan Torohia
Just like his team, Torohia has progressed spectacularly since his maiden outing at Ravenna 2011 and stepped it up a level in Portugal. The 30-year-old goalkeeper frequently has his work cut out for him because of Tahiti's buccaneering attacking style. Indeed, while his reflexes and athleticism are of vital importance, so too is his creativity with the ball, as demonstrated by the fact that he served up four assists. The custodian's impressive displays make him a worthy winner of the adidas Golden Glove at his third Beach Soccer World Cup.
FIFA Fair Play Trophy: Brazil
The four-time world champions failed to reach the semi-finals of the event for the first time in their history, but they never lost their discipline. Their reward is the FIFA Fair Play Trophy for the best-behaved team of the tournament.
