The striker netted three times in just 189 minutes of action as his country retained the European Championship and he is currently the Chelsea's joint-top scorer this term with seven strikes from 18 appearances.
After being presented with his prize, Torres took us back to his formative years to reveal how he used a nasty injury to his benefit, shaping him into the player he is today.
"I had a very bad injury when I was 15," the 28-year-old revealed. "I broke my patella tendon and I had to do a lot of work in the gym; before that I was so skinny. So i was working on my quads especially to build up the strength around my knee, and I started to be more about power than speed.
"I think everything happens for a reason. Maybe that helped me because I had been playing with huge pain in the knee. But after that we won the Under-16s European Championship here in England with Spain and then I played with the Atletico Madrid first team, all in the same season. It was a bad time and a good time for me that year!"
