The Frenchman may have fallen just short of lifting the trophy as France were beaten 1-0 in the final but that did not stop him from claiming top individual honours.
"Antoine Griezmann was a threat in every game he played," said UEFA's chief technical officer Ioan Lupescu.
"He works hard for his team and possesses technique, vision and quality finishing. The technical observers were in unanimous agreement that he was the tournament's outstanding player."
Griezmann received plenty of plaudits for his performances at the tournament, grabbing 6 goals along the way to also claim the Golden Boot.
