Despite being 34, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to play at the highest level

Cristiano Ronaldo has, alongside Lionel Messi, dominated football throughout the majority of his footballing career. As well as filling his trophy cabinet year after year, in a virtually peerless fashion, the Portuguese has also etched himself into whole chapters of the footballing record books.

One of the feats that amaze people most about Cristiano Ronaldo is his longevity which has seen him remain amongst the best players in the world, even at the age of 34. This is perhaps best illustrated by his move to Juventus last year, at a stage of his career where other all-time greats retired or transferred to weaker leagues in Asia or America.

This article will look at 3 amazing records that Cristiano Ronaldo has set since turning 30.

#3 First Player to win the Serie A, La Liga, and English Premier League

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to win trophies with every team he has ever played at, be it at club level or on the international stage. During his illustrious career, the Portuguese giant has played for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, the Portuguese National Team, and currently Juventus.

In the summer of 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo made the bold decision to leave Real Madrid after 9 years there and 450 goals later. The Portuguese decided to join Italian giants Juventus, where, in his first season, he won the Serie A league title.

Winning the title alone isn't all that impressive, given that Juventus has won the last 8 in a row. What is impressive, however, is the fact that in winning the 2018/19 league, Ronaldo became the first player to ever win the league title in the top flight for Spain, England, and Italy.

Whilst other players like Ibrahimovic and Robben have also won three of the top 5 league titles, no one has done so in England, Italy, and Spain.
