The National’s Sport cover for the Sunday, September 21 issue, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and a Real Madrid side that fired off eight goals against Deportivo la Coruna in a La Liga romp.

Carlo Ancelotti called the Portuguese striker 'a phenomenon' after the match, which saw a Ronaldo hat-trick, a Gareth Bale double, a Javier Hernandez double and one other goal for good measure from James Rodriguez.

It was a welcome salve for a side coming off rare consecutive La Liga losses.
