Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has scooped the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year award for 2014.
Winning the prestigious accolade, voted for by sports journalists, makes it a double for the Uruguayan after lifting the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year crown last week.
The 27-year-old won the FWA's equivalent with 52% of the vote, ahead of Anfield colleague Steven Gerrard and Manchester City's Yaya Toure.
Upon announcing the results, FWA chairman Andy Dunn, of the Sunday Mirror, commented: "Those members who have been fortunate enough to be working at a match involving Luis Suarez have witnessed an astonishing talent first-hand.
"Tireless endeavour allied to extraordinary imagination makes an irresistible combination. Add ingenious, impudent finishing and you have a footballer who truly quickens the pulse.
"Luis is a remarkable gifted addition to the long and distinguished list of winners of our award."
Suarez is rewarded after becoming the first Liverpool player to reach 30 league goals in a single campaign during the Premier League era.
His goals, and all-round endeavour, have helped the Merseysiders exceed expectations and with two games remaining Brendan Rodgers' side could still lift the title.
The Reds, who are assured of a return to the Champions League next term, are next in action tonight knowing a win against surprise package Crystal Palace will guarantee runners-up spot.
Suarez will collect his trophy from the FWA at a gala dinner to be held on May 15 in London.
