Brazilian legend Pele congratulated Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo for overtaking him in the all-time goal charts.
Pele was full of congratulations on the all-time goal record of the Juventus forward.
On Sunday’s meeting with Cagliari, the two were tied to 767 official career goals (club and international).
However, Ronaldo’s first-half hat trick saw him step up to 770, which some consider to be a world record.
Regardless, the overtaking of Pele is a monumental accomplishment for Ronaldo, and the Brazilian took to Instagram to give his congratulations.
“Life is a solo flight. Each makes his own journey,” he began. “And what a beautiful journey you are having. I admire you a lot, I love watching you play and this is no secret to anyone. Congratulations on breaking my record of goals in official matches.”
