Ronaldo scored a brace at Old Trafford as United came from behind in Michael Carrick's final game as caretaker manager.
It means the Portugal international busted out his iconic celebration twice, but it was the second time that caught everyone's attention.
After smashing his penalty past Aaron Ramsdale, Ronaldo ran to the corner flag, jumped, and was met with a massive ovation.

Showing his famous number seven shirt to the Old Trafford terraces as his teammates wheeled over in joy, Ronaldo proved he's the ultimate showman.
Of the players who ran over, Diogo Dalot, Jadon Sancho and Alex Telles even copied the celebration.
That's when you know you've got the respect of younger players in the squad.
The whole stadium with the SIIIIIIIIUUUUUUU. Best sound in the world. https://t.co/a4EaBlMrJy

The 36-year-old now has 801 official goals in his career, the highest tally in world football right now.
United have moved up to seventh in the Premier League and will now be guided by interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
Carrick confirmed following the win he'd also be leaving his post as first-team coach, ending his 15 year association with the club.
Rangnick confirmed in his press conference on Friday he tried his hardest to keep Carrick around.
He said: "I got to know this two days and met with Michael [Carrick] and Kieran [McKenna]. I had a private conversation for about an hour and tried to convince him [Carrick] to stay on board."
United return to action on Sunday against Crystal Palace.
