Juventus fans at the Allianz Stadium were on their feet to applaud the 33-year-old's bicycle goal on Tuesday, despite that very strike putting Real 2-0 ahead in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie.
Ronaldo's strike stunned supporters not only at the venue where it took place, but all around the world too, including many former and current professional players and coaches.
Sergio Ramos, the Portuguese star's teammate and captain, was among those to hail the goal, as was his manager Zinedine Zidane, who explained that he could not help his child-like reaction.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri also praised Ronaldo's strike, according to the London Evening Standard, while Andrea Barzagli and Gianluigi Buffon could not help but speak in admiration of the forward.
Ronaldo's former Real colleague Alvaro Arbeloa claimed the 33-year-old can now go play football with aliens as he has achieved everything on earth, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic cheekily dared Ronaldo to try a bicycle-kick from further out.
The Swede famously scored a scissor-kick from way outside the box on international duty against England in 2012, seizing the moment with Joe Hart far off his line.
Ronaldo's former Manchester United teammate Rio Ferdinand also hailed the strike on BT Sport, while the likes of Raphael Varane and Gary Lineker also complimented the Real attacker's effort.
