Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals for Real Madrid on Wednesday afternoon as they overcame Real Sociedad 3-1 at the Bernabeu.
The Portuguese's brace capped another fantastic year for the 30-year-old personally as he ended 2015 with 57 goals in as many appearances for club and country.
But despite another incredible year in front of goal, Ronaldo looks certain to relinquish his hold on the Ballon d'Or in January.

It could have been 58 goals for the calendar year had the former Manchester United man not horribly blazed a penalty over the bar during the win over Sociedad; the first time he had missed the target from the spot in his Madrid career.
However, that does not detract from his achievements, and his second goal of the afternoon was arguably one of his best of 2015 as he produced a first-time volley directly from a Marcelo corner.
11 of Ronaldo's goals came from the penalty spot. He also recorded eight hat-tricks, including two occasions when he hit five in a game; the unlucky opponents being Granada and Espanyol.
He has been as prolific as they come since making the switch to Real Madrid in 2009 and his position as the club's all-time record goalscorer is testament to that.
However, 2015 was a year where Ronaldo seemed to produce fewer goals to take your breath away than we've come to expect. In fact, the vast majority of his efforts came from inside the 18-yard box.
But there were still some pretty impressive strikes. So here are five of his best goals from 2015.
