Cristiano Ronaldo reminded everyone that he's one of the greats last night - if anyone had actually forgotten.

His shock move to Juventus in the summer only really made sense for the Italian champions if they were pushing for European victory.

And so everything looked a bit of a mess after their 2-0 defeat away at Atletico Madrid in the first leg.

But Ronaldo stepped forward in the return leg to fire Juve into the quarter-finals with a wonderful hat-trick that featured two excellent headers.

Ronaldo has scored many incredible goals in the Champions League - who could forget his bicycle kick last season? - but no one heads a ball like him.

His goals last night were enough for Gary Lineker to label Ronaldo as 'the best header of a ball [he's] ever seen' and it's tough to disagree.

In fact, the five-time Champions League winner has scored some very memorable headers just in Europe.

And BT Sport have highlighted that fact with video remembering some of his best ever.

You can check it out below:

The video features five fantastic efforts for Juventus, Real Madrid, and Manchester United.

Who else can get that kind of leap and connection with the ball? Who else ever?

Cristiano Ronaldo's performance against Atletico has been praised from all corners.

Ronaldo is such an incredible complete goalscorer, able to score virtually any kind of goal. That's what Juventus bought in the summer.

They hope he can carry them to the Champions League trophy for the first time in decades. Even at 34 years old, he looks very capable of pulling that off.
