Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo showed exactly why he is on another level after he pulled off incredible ball control during a gravity-defying jump.

The 36-year-old Portuguese forward lifted his first Coppa Italia title on Wednesday as Juventus defeated Atalanta 2-1 at the Citta del Tricolore.

Ronaldo fell short of securing a magnificent backheel assist on the night after Federico Chiesa failed to beat Pierluigi Gollini in the ensuing one-on-one battle.

However, the Portugal captain once again showed off his phenomenal leaping ability during the Coppa Italia final.

Atalanta defender Cristian Romero, who is on loan from Juventus, leapt in the air to head the ball clear.

The 23-year-old Argentine centre-back didn't come close to reaching the ball as Ronaldo successfully challenged him in the air.

Ronaldo climbed an incredible distance into the air and even managed to chest the ball as he brought it under his control.

"Man, if I were to be an opponent and Ronaldo jumps, I wouldn't even worry myself. Just look! Man was giving it his all and Ronaldo wasn't even trying," one fan posted.

While someone else wrote: "They said the other guy was out of this world but extra-terrestrial activities are being done daily by Cristiano. What do I know?"

A third Twitter user said: "Funny how the ball is too high for the header by the defender but Ronaldo controls with his chest."

And a fourth tweeted: "Gamers have a lag switch (at least the bad ones that need to cheat) but [Ronaldo] has a dang gravity switch. It's madness!"

Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a summer exit from Juventus amid rumours surrounding his future in Turin.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner will see his current Juventus deal expire in 2022.
