According to Goal.com, Ronaldo’s presence in Turin has helped to cement that dominance, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner showing no sign of slowing down at 35 years of age.

He continues to set the standard for those around him, with a place among the all-time greats safely secured. Pele also occupies that talent bracket, and the Brazilian legend remains a big fan of a modern-day superstar.

He is pleased to see Ronaldo’s remarkable professionalism and dedication to his craft being richly rewarded, with major honours collected on a regular basis. An iconic figure of the past is also happy for fellow countrymen Douglas Costa, Danilo and Alex Sandro, who have picked up another medal alongside their illustrious Portuguese team-mate.

Pele said in a post on his official Instagram account: “@Cristiano is the modern athlete, who shows everyone that success always comes to those who are dedicated and love what they do.

It could also be recalled that atqnews.com recently published a post where Cristiano Ronaldo equalled another Brazilian legend, Romario last weekend when his two goals against Lazio moved him to joint-second in the list of most official goals scored.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner now has only Pele ahead of him, with the Brazilian legend scoring more official goals in his career.
