The 36-year-old found the back of the net in Juve's 3-0 win over Spezia on Tuesday, scoring his side's third strike of the night.

The victory saw the Bianconeri cut their gap on Serie A leaders Inter Milan to seven points, while Ronaldo took his tally to 20 league goals this campaign.

See below where Ronaldo sits among the highest-paid players in world football:

The Portugal talisman had more reason to celebrate in what was a landmark appearance for him, having now featured in 600 league games across the Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A.

In addition, his strike against Spezia ensured that he has now scored at least 20 goals in his past 12 campaigns – a record Messi set last season and one that he could extend in his next LaLiga match as he is currently on 19 goals in this campaign.
