Ronaldo reminded the world of his talents yet again with all three goals as Juventus overturned a two-goal deficit to beat Atletico Madrid last night.
The Portuguese superstar scored two powerful headers before cooly slotting an 86th minute penalty to send the home fans inside the Juventus Stadium wild.
Ronaldo celebrated with his team-mates as he become the Champions League’s all-time top scorer with 124 goals.
He even found time to seemingly mock Atletico boss Diego Simeone, having sent the Spanish side out of this competitions in the last five successive seasons.
And up in the stands, Ronaldo’s son was doing his best to emulate his father’s incredible on-pitch heroics.
Cristiano Junior, who is eight years old, wants to follow in his father’s footsteps and couldn’t hold back as he punched the air in delight and screamed as the third goal went in.
And Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez was brought to tears by what unfolded in Turin on the night of one of the great European comebacks.
Rodriguez – who has a child with the 34-year-old – couldn’t believe what she was seeing as Ronaldo scored past Jan Oblak from the spot late on.
Having taken a moment to catch her breath, Rodriguez let out tears of joy as emotion swirled around the new stadium.
And after the game, she took to Instagram to pay tribute to her long-time partner.
“This 3-0 nobody steals it. You deserve it, not for the 3 goals tonight. You deserve it for your dedication, for what you get in the club where you are.
“You are a trailblazer for your team-mates, coach and everyone we admire and support every day,” she wrote alongside an childhood pic of Ronaldo.
“Karma exists. God knows, God gives it to you, because the world of soccer is yours. WE LOVE YOU. Cristianito, Mateo, Eva, Alana, Georgina.”
The pair have a daughter together, Alana Martina, and also take care of Cristiano’s twins, daughter Eva and son Mateo – as well as oldest son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.
Ronaldo’s was confident of taking Juventus through to the last eight of the Champions League and wasn’t afraid to say so after the final whistle.
“It was meant to be a special night and it was, not just for my goals but for the attitude we showed,” he said
“That is the sort of mentality you need to win the Champions League.
“This was why Juventus brought me here. To help do things that they have never done before.”
