Ozil founded the ‘Özil-Foundation’ in 2015 to support children and young people around the world.
The Arsenal star has also been a Laureus ambassador and has worked with the foundation on charitable projects including helping Brazilian kids living in poverty after the World Cup.
The 27-year-old was also presented with a Laureus Sport for Good award in recognition of his work. Ozil used his World Cup bonus to fund operations for 23 seriously ill Brazilian children.
Ozil assisted 19 goals in the league this season, just one short of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
