Cristiano Ronaldo found the perfect way to silence the critics on Saturday evening.

He didn’t post a message on social media, or say anything to the press. He simply scored a hat-trick in one of Real Madrid’s biggest games of the season.

That quickly forced the internet warriors back into hiding.

It was the 39th time that Ronaldo has scored a hat-trick for Los Blancos, and the 44th hat-trick of his career.

It also extinguished any hope that Lionel Messi had of beating his Portuguese rival to the 2016 Ballon d’Or. Probably.

Not only did the 31-year-old show off his ability to score various types of goals - he scored a free-kick (albeit a deflected one), a penalty and a tap-in - but he also unveiled a brand new celebration.

He performed the trademark leap and spin after his first goal, but it was later replaced by a cool pose into the camera. Check it out below.

Twitter has been guessing just what exactly Ronaldo’s new celebration means. There seems to be four general viewpoints.

Ronaldo was asking where the critics are

He was performing the Mannequin challenge

It was a typical egotistical celebration

He’s just one uber-cool guy
