Pele Pays Tribute To CR7 After Serie A Title Triumph

Brazil icon Pele, who is regarded by many to be the best player in the history of the game, has paid tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo after he clinched the Serie A title with Juventus on Sunday.

Read: Ronaldo Makes History With Second Serie A Title

The 35-year-old has netted 31 goals in Italy's top flight so far in this campaign, helping the Bianconeri secure a ninth successive league trophy in the process.

With Juve having secured the title with two games to spare, Selecao legend Pele had some words of praise for the superstar and his Brazilian teammates at the Turin club.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is the modern athlete, who shows everyone that success always comes for those who are committed and love what they do," Pele wrote on Instagram, as translated into English.

"In addition to him, I want to pay tribute to the incredible Douglas Costa, Alex Sandro and Danilo. Congratulations on the championship, Juventus!"

Ronaldo will have two more Serie A games in which to add to his goals tally and close the gap on European Golden Shoe leaders Robert Lewandowski and Ciro Immobile – who both have 34 league strikes to their names this season – when Juventus face Cagliari on Wednesday and AS Roma on Saturday.
