He scored two goals in Portugal's thrilling 2-2 draw with France in Budapest, as his side secured a spot in the last-16.

The 36-year-old also stunned fans with a spectacular jump that has been captured in slow-motion.

In the second-half, the Juventus forward challenged Kimpembe in an aerial duel.

Raphael Guerreiro lofted a cross into the box, with Ronaldo out-jumping the France defender following a gravity-defying leap.

He set off and rose highest - and somehow managed to put his hand on Kimpembe's head as he won a header, which went wide.

While he couldn't fashion a shot on target, fans online couldn't believe how high he jumped.

Claudio Ranieri once compared the five-time Ballon d'Or winner to an NBA player when he produced a similar moment in a Serie A match.

"Ronaldo did something that you see in the NBA (National Basketball Association), he was up in the air for an hour and a half," he said.

"There's nothing you can say about it, you can only congratulate him and move on."

Ronaldo, meanwhile, converted a penalty in each half as Portugal drew 2-2 with France.

Karim Benzema scored his side's goals in a exciting back-and-forth meeting.

Ronaldo has already bagged five goals this tournament as his side face Belgium for a place in the quarter-finals.
