All Of Cristiano Ronaldo's Best Records
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest of all time and the Juventus forward has some incredible records to his name to back up that claim.
Ronaldo turns 36 today and it doesn't look like there's any signs of him slowing down just yet, and with a World Cup less than two years away you can bet he'll go on till at least then and likely beyond.
The Portuguese superstar has won a whole host of honours for both club and country, including seven league titles, five Champions Leagues and the Euros, but it's his personal records list that is really impressive.
Recently Ronaldo scored the 760th goal of his career and overtook Josef Bican as the all time top goalscorer in the history of football. It has been disputed but officially it is the Juve forward's record.
The only person likely to overtake him anytime soon is unsurprisingly Lionel Messi, though the Barca forward is 49 goals behind his rival.
Whilst some people have questioned Ronaldo's all time top scorer record his records in the Champions League and for Real Madrid can't be disputed.
The former Galactico has scored more goals in Europe's top competition than anyone else, bagging 134 goals in 174 appearances, Messi is once again his closest competition.
The 60 goals he's scored in the knockout stages of the Champions League is another record for the competition.
A litany of other records in UEFA's top club competition also follow, including most goals in a season, six consecutive top scorer awards and most hat-tricks in a single season.
He is also the only player to score in three finals, with the former Manchester United winger winning all three of those finals, one with the Premier League side and two with Los Blancos.

His record at the Bernabeu is his record potentially least likely to be beaten, especially when you consider the ratio of goals to games.
Ronaldo is the club's all time top goal scorer, scoring an incredible 450 goals in just 438 appearances. To put it in context, club legend Raul is second on the list with 323 goals in 741 appearances.
Ferenc Puskas' 242 goals in 262 appearances for the club is the closest ration to Ronaldo's 1.03 goals per game ratio, but the Hungarian's 0.92 goals per game is still some way short.
His 102 goals for Portugal is the most by any European in international football and he's only eight goals off being the all time top scorer for international goals, although that one will no doubt be disputed in the same way his 760 goals record is disputed.
Those 102 strikes include goals at four Euros, more than anyone else, including being the only player to score three or more at more than one tournament.
Since moving to Italy, Ronaldo has become the first player to score 50+ goals in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A, with his 50 goals in Italy's top tier coming in just 61 games, the quickest in league history.
Despite everything Ronaldo has won, he's ninth on the all time trophy list for players, and all the records he has, there's no doubting how hungry he still is.
The 36-year-old was clearly annoyed on Tuesday night after being subbed off during Juve's Coppa Italia win over rivals Inter in the semi-final first leg. After scoring twice Ronaldo was hoping to complete a hat-trick but was taken off with 15 minutes to go.
Personal and team triumph has clearly spurred him on throughout his career and it's unlikely he's going to stop winning silverware and breaking records anytime soon.
The international goals record is certainly the next one in his sights and maybe a sixth Ballon d'Or in the future, to get level with Messi.
