The 30-year-old moved three goals ahead of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi after scoring a hat-trick against Ukrainian side Donetsk on Tuesday evening.
Ronaldo is now just two goals away from equalling Raul’s record as Madrid’s all-time leading goal-scorer.
Here are some of the best reactions:
Remember when 1 in 2 was a good scoring record? @Cristiano record is ridiculous !!!

Ronaldo has scored 8 goals in his last 180 minutes of football. That’s a goal every 22.5 minutes. Cheers Geoff
