In doing so, the Portuguese forward became the fastest player to reach half a century of goals in the Italian top flight since the 1994/95 season.

Ronaldo is now also joint top scorer in the Serie A this season with 30 goals, and Sarri has been impressed with how his talisman is able to perform at a high level in every game.

"When Cristiano smells blood… he's extraordinary, as he recovers so quickly between games," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.

"It's not just physical, but psychological.

"He could be someone who uses up so much energy in each game, but he recovers it every time and he's world class in the mind as well as the legs."
