Cristiano Ronaldo Has Now Scored 100 Headed Goals In His Career

Cristiano Ronaldo Has Now Scored 100 Headed Goals In His Career

"You cannot defend against a jump of that height" - the summary Chris Coleman provided after seeing Cristiano Ronaldo jump 2.65m (8ft 7in) in the air to open the scoring against his Wales side in the Euro 2016 semi-finals.

Ronaldo was somehow able to get 80cm off the ground and boast a hang-time of 0.7 seconds to head home Raphael Guerrero's cross. That's just not normal.

Last night in the 1-1 draw with city rivals Torino, Ronaldo notched his 100th headed goal of his career to salvage a point for the Bianconeri and deny Torino their first away derby win for 24 years.

And again Ronaldo demonstrated the special aerial prowess that defenders simply cannot prepare for and further proved that he is the best header of a ball in football history.

Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Lionel Messi: Which Player Has Scored Most Non-Penalty Goals Each Season?

During biomechanic tests on the forward at the University of Chichester in 2011, with the whole thing documented in an in-depth video for Castrol Edge Rankings, it emerged that Ronaldo is able to jump higher than an average NBA player.

Able to generate 5G of G-force on take-off and helped by his a thigh circumference of 62cm, he can reach heights of 44 cm from a standing start and 78 cm when he has a run-up - 7cm more than the average basketballer.

You only have to look at his headers against Atletico Madrid and Ajax in the Champions League, while there's further evidence of his unmatched ability in the air in the compilation BT Sport released last month.

Even the most physically imposing and aerially dominant defenders do not stand a chance...
