The 34-year-old, who has been at the top of his game for many years, is still regularly considered for almost every major individual honour out there, and was announced among the nominees for the 2019 Ballon d'Or on Monday evening.
In a press conference ahead of Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday night, Ronaldo made it clear that, despite his advancing age, he is not considering hanging up his boots any time soon.
"Age is just a number. It does not mean that at 34, 35, 36 you are at the end of your career," he said, according to ESPN.
"I can show that with my performances, how I play, the way I play, the way I still feel good, sharp, thinking about the game, more mature.
"This makes the difference."
Ronaldo has scored five goals in nine matches for the Bianconeri so far this season.
