Baku, March 15, AZERTAC

Brazilian legend Pele has taken to social media to praise the goalscoring exploits of Cristiano Ronaldo after the forward’s hat-trick in Juventus' 3-1 Serie A win over Cagliari on Sunday, according to Sky Sports.

Ronaldo scored a perfect hat-trick inside 32 minutes with a header, a right-footed penalty, and a left-foot shot as Juventus bounced back from their midweek Champions League exit.

Those three goals took the 36-year-old five-time Ballon d'Or winner to an incredible tally of 770 with the player acknowledging the feat on Instagram and praising Pele's impact on him growing up.
