Unless you’ve been living on the moon for the last few days, you’ll know by now that Cristiano Ronaldo is now Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer.
The Portuguese superstar managed to finally overtake club legend Raul by netting his 500th and 501st professional goals against Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The double strike against the Swedes takes Ronnie’s tally to an eye-watering 324 goals in 308 games for Real since moving to the Spanish capital in 2009. Just for the record, Raul took 708 games to reach the same amount.
The three-time Ballon d’or winner was presented with a special award to commemorate the incredible achievement at an event on Friday, which was attended by all of his team-mates and the club’s hierarchy.
And before being presented with his latest statue, the club played an amazing video montage of the striker’s best moments and most memorable goals for the club.
It’s easy to scoff at his prima donna antics and perfectly positioned hair, but there’s absolutely no denying he’s one of the greatest footballers we’ll ever have the pleasure of watching. Don’t agree? We defy anyone to argue with some of the strikes on this clip…and fair play to Los Blancos for producing such an epic video!
