Tottenham star Dele Alli scooped his second consecutive PFA Young Player of the Year award on Sunday night and had another reason to smile after being accompanied to the ceremony by his girlfriend Ruby Mae.

Alli was going up against his Spurs teammate Harry Kane, Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Everton hitman Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane and Burnley defender Michael Keane at the Grosvenor House.

All the shortlisted players have had fine seasons but it was Alli who claimed the top prize - which was his second in two seasons, confirming his rapid rise to stardom.

On hand to congratulate the former MK Dons youngster was his stunning girlfriend Ruby Mae, who is a lingerie model for fashion brand Pour Moi? and ended a trip away to be at the bash especially.

The couple started dating early last year and Ruby was photographed on numerous occasions at last summer's Euro 2016 championships supporting her man.

21-year-old Alli said of winning the award, as quoted by The Sun: "I’m extremely proud. It’s a great honour for me - obviously the second year in a row - but I’ve still got a lot to do, I’ve got to keep working hard. I’ve got to keep improving."

Alli was in attendance at the ceremony with Ruby just hours after his side were dumped out of the FA Cup by Chelsea at the final hurdle - he is currently preparing to face a revitalised Crystal Palace side on Wednesday in a must-win game to keep the pressure on the Blues.
