Cristiano Ronaldo turns 35 on Wednesday. While others his age are showing signs of slowing down, the Portuguese superstar is busy breaking one record after the other.

Just this week, Ronaldo stretched his scoring streak to nine consecutive league games for Juventus. The former Real Madrid player has now scored 50 goals in 70 games across competitions since moving to Juve in 2018; that too after it was thought the Serie A system would considerably slow down his scoring abilities.

It's not like Ronaldo needs to prove anything to anyone any more. Five Ballons d'Or, six Champions League titles and one Euro crown, along with league wins across Europe, are more than enough to make him one of the greatest footballers of all time.

Ronaldo's stardom is not restricted to the football field. One of the highest paid athletes on the planet, Ronaldo is a marketing diamond; his record 200 million following on Instagram generates more revenue for him than his Juve salary.
