Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has broken Raul's all-time goalscoring record after scoring in Los Blancos' 3-0 win over Levante on Saturday.

Ronaldo was level with the Spanish legend on 323 goals for Madrid in the build-up to the La Liga clash at the Bernabeu, with there little doubt that the Portuguese would someday surpass the incredible feat.

And on the stroke of the half-hour mark, the 30-year-old scored the required goal to further write himself into Madrid's record books.

Three minutes after left-back Marcelo broke the deadlock in the 27th minute, Ronaldo found himself with time and space on the edge of the box.

Typical of his scintillating form throughout a glittering career, the four-time Golden Boot winner thumped a superb strike into the bottom corner, the keeper no chance.

History had been made as Ronaldo wheeled away in typical celebration, his name now forever synonymous with the Spanish giants, if it wasn't already so.

Almost as if it was written in the stars, Ronaldo posted on Twitter earlier in the day expressing his delight at being Madrid's 'top goalscorer', posing with a pair of Nike football boots specially crafted to mark the achievement.

What Ronaldo meant to say at the time of tweeting, of course, was that he was honoured to be Madrid's joint top goalscorer, though there is little doubt who the sole holder of the incredible record now is.

Madrid's win sent them to the top of La Liga, two points ahead of rivals Barcelona, with the hope that Ronaldo and co. can now push on and claim their first title since 2012.
