Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has received his Guinness World Records certificate after breaking the record of goals in men’s international football.
Ronaldo grabbed a brace as Portugal beat Ireland 2-1 on Wednesday to achieve the feat.
Before the game, the 36-year-old was level with Iranian, Ali Daei on 109 goals.
Ironically, Ronaldo had the chance to break the record earlier in the game but saw his penalty saved.
Ronaldo took to Instagram on Friday, posting a picture of himself with the Guinness certificate confirming his latest achievement.
He wrote: “Thank you to the Guiness (sic) World Records. Always good to be recognised as a world record breaker. Let’s keep trying to set the numbers even higher!”
Daei took to social media to praise Ronaldo’s achievement in breaking his record, hailing the Portugal captain’s “humility and kindness”.
