Cristiano Ronaldo has begun the 19th season of his illustrious career but the 35-year-old remains one of the fittest footballers on the planet.

While the vast majority of players begin to deteriorate rapidly by their mid-30s, Ronaldo is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.

The Portuguese superstar opened his account for the 2020-21 campaign in Juventus’s 3-0 win over Sampdoria last weekend.

And the veteran forward added two more goals to his tally against AS Roma on Sunday.

Jordan Veretout put Roma 1-0 up at the Stadio Olimpico from the penalty spot after half-hour, but Ronaldo’s spot-kick in the 44th minute levelled the scores.

Veretout then notched his second goal of the evening on the stroke of half-time but Ronaldo equalled for Juve again with 20 minutes remaining.

And it was some goal, too.

Danilo whipped in the cross and Ronaldo rose highest to head home past Roma’s Antonio Mirante.

Even at the age of 35, Ronaldo’s ability to hang in the air is extraordinary.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner rose highest and remained in the air until directing the ball into the net.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen Ronaldo’s stunning hang time and it won’t be the last.

Let’s check out some of the best reaction to Ronaldo’s latest goal on social media…

A Ronaldo winner for his hat-trick felt inevitable but no further goals were scored as the two sides shared the spoils.

Nevertheless, he still managed to break yet another record with his latest goal.

He's become the first player to score 450 goals in Europe's top five leagues.

Congratulations, Cristiano!
