Cristiano Ronaldo is now football’s all-time top goalscorer. He broke the 66-year-old record when he scored his 760th goal for Juventus against Napoli in the Italian Super Cup on Wednesday (January 20).

So far, the 35-year-old has scored 86 goals for Juventus. These are added to the 450 he scored for Real Madrid, the 118 he scored for Manchester United, the four he managed for Sporting, and the 102 for Portugal.

Josef Bican, who is believed to have scored 759 goals between 1931 and 1955, had previously led with Pele on 757 goals.

Ronaldo’s rival Lionel Messi is currently 41 goals behind the Portuguese’s tally. But Messi is younger and has played fewer matches.
