Starman Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed the goalscoring record set by Brazilian legend Pele in their 4-1 win over Udinese on Sunday.
Ronaldo gave Juventus the lead in the 31st minute and completed his double 20 minutes from time with the first goal taking his career tally to 757 goals for club and country – the same as Pelé managed in his career.
It took Ronaldo 1035 matches to reach that milestone, whereas Pelé did it in just 815.
The first strike means that the Portugal captain has now scored a goal in each of the last 20 years with the second goal taking his career tally to 758 goals.
