WATCH: This Compilation Of 'R9' Ronaldo Is Proof That He Was Unstoppable In His Prime

Six years after retiring from the game after a brief stint at Corinthians, the once deadly 'R9' Ronaldo gave the Bernabeu a glimpse of his former self during a legends game vs AS Roma, last month.

The likes of Figo, Roberto Carlos and Raul appeared in the game, but Ronaldo's return to Bernabeu - 10 years after leaving to join AC Milan - was the biggest talking point.

There are plenty of reasons why Ronaldo is often referred to as the ultimate striker.

In five years at Real Madrid, he scored 83 goals in 127 games, while his spells at PSV, Barcelona and AC Milan often produced golden moments, but the peak of his powers were on show at I Nerazzurri.

La Beneamata was the home of the cherished one.

The Brazilian had it all. Pace, power, finishing and skill - he was simply unstoppable week in and week out.

For those unfortunate enough to have missed out on the great Ronaldo, here's a two minute compilation of his incredible ability during those glory days at Inter:

Ronaldo, who now suffers from hypothyroidism - an illness that causes weight gain - wasn't in the shape of his life during the legends game vs Roma, but it's clear to see the striker hasn't lost his touch and skill.

He spent 33 minutes on the field of play, showing glimpses of the old Ronaldo.

15 years on from his memorable spell at Inter, the 40-year-old left the Bernabeu in awe. Just like he did all those years ago.

So when your kid talks about Ronaldo and Messi as the best striker's in recent memory, just show them the above clip of Ronaldo.

Here are some of his highlight's from the Real Madrid legends game back in June:

Thank you for the memories, Ronaldo.
