Cristiano Ronaldo's Leap To Score Against Crotone Was Not Normal For A 36-Year-Old

Cristiano Ronaldo's Leap To Score Against Crotone Was Not Normal For A 36-Year-Old

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 133 headed goals in his career after a brace helped Juventus to a comfortable 3-0 win against Serie A's bottom side Crotone on Monday night.

The 36-year-old gave his side the lead in the 38th minute with a well-placed header but it was his extraordinary leap eight minutes later that grabbed the headlines. We knew he was good in the air - but even this surprised us.

Portugal's captain saw a long-range effort palmed away by Crotone goalkeeper Alex Cordaz but he never gave up on the chance and, after Aaron Ramsey crossed it into the box, Ronaldo found space and lept like a salmon to make it two.

Noboby has scored more headed goals in football history than the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and this one in particular was one of his best.

This isn't normal for a 36-year-old.

He is also the fastest player to reach the 70-goal mark in Serie A after his brace against struggling Crotone.

The man isn't slowing down and he's 36-years-old. Can he play until he's 40? It certainly looks like it at this rate.

The greatest of all time? Everyone has their opinion but I'm sure we can all agree that his numbers are quite remarkable.
