The living legend further enhancing his legacy, not that it needed any more enhancing, after reaching yet another milestone on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the player with the most official goal in football history.

Ronaldo has scored 759 times in his remarkable career so far and is level with Josef Bican as the highest-ever goal scorer for club and country. Pele (757), Romario (749), Lionel Messi (719), and Ferenc Puskas (705) are next on that list.

84 of those strikes have come in Juventus colors for the Portuguese forward and 102 of those for his nation. He scored a remarkable 450 goals during his nine-year stay at Real Madrid, 118 while at Manchester United, and five during his early years at Sporting.

CR7 hit his landmark goal in Juventus’ Serie A outing against Sassuolo, scoring the final goal in the 3-1 victory.

It was his 15th strike of the Serie A campaign. Ronaldo has averaged an impressive 1.12 goal-per-game for Juventus this season, netting 19 goals in just 17 games across all competitions.
