Ronaldo recognised as all-time top scorer with 760th goal

CRISTIANO RONALDO (pictured) was recognised as football’s all-time leading goalscorer after firing Juventus to Italian Super Cup glory against Napoli.

Portugal international Ronaldo registered the 760th strike of a remarkable career in the 64th minute to help reigning Serie A champions Juve claim the trophy with a 2-0 win.

The 35-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward moved one goal ahead of Czech player Josef Bican, who officially managed 759 strikes between 1931 and 1955.

There is some dispute, however, with some sources crediting Bican with 805 goals, while putting Romario on 772 and Pele on 767.

What was certain was that Ronaldo’s latest strike helped him to another honour with Juve.
