Jude Bellingham has made history by being named LaLiga Player of the Month.
The England superstar moved to Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in a huge £113million move in June.
Bellingham has started brilliantly, with four goals and an assist in his first three games for the Spanish giants.
He netted in victories against Athletic Club and Almeria, before scoring a late winner against Celta Vigo to help Carlo Ancelotti‘s men get a perfect start to the league campaign.
And Spain’s top-flight LaLiga announced on Thursday that the gifted 20-year-old has been named as the top player in the division across August.

He is the first English player to win the award – beating the likes of Steve McManaman, Gary Lineker, Michael Owen and Laurie Cunningham.
Former Birmingham City academy product Bellingham is just the third player to score in his first three Los Blancos appearances, after Wesley Sneijder and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mail Sport reported on Monday that Bellingham and his Real Madrid team-mates were pictured partying in a plush beach club in Saint-Tropez.
The midfielder has been in fine form since his move to Spain, with the 20-year-old scoring four times in five games for the LaLiga giants.
His most recent goal came on Friday night as they beat Celta Vigo 1-0, with the England international scoring nine minutes from full-time.
Los Blancos stars have since been spotted partying in Verde Beach Club on the French Riviera. Bellingham was joined by the likes of Brazil forward Rodrygo and midfield partner Aurelien Tchouameni as they enjoyed their time in France. 
Boss Ancelotti has praised his goal scoring as he revealed the youngster has replaced Karim Benzema, who moved to Al-Ittihad this summer. 
‘We think the arrival of Jude Bellingham covers the absence of Benzema, without creating too many parallels,’ he said.
