What's the story?

Football fans have expressed their delight in what is now a new and improved goal celebration by Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo in his side's 2-0 win over SPAL this weekend.

In case you didn't know...

Allegri's Juventus got back to Serie A action on Saturday in a game that saw the league toppers win 2-0 at the Allianz Stadium.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic helped the Bianconeri side register a comfortable victory over their opponents.

Ronaldo's 28th-minute goal marked the Portuguese's tenth goal in all competitions as a Juventus player, thereby setting a new record for the club.

The goal helped the five-time Ballon d'Or winner become the fastest player in the history of Juventus to reach 10 goals in all competitions, after 16 appearances. 

The goal also marked Ronaldo's ninth in the Serie A, making him joint-top scorer of the league, together with Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek. 

The former Real Madrid star, however, has six assists to his name while Piatek has none.

The heart of the matter

In a record-breaking night for Ronaldo, football fans were impressed by the manner in which the Bianconeri faithful took part in his celebration following his 28th-minute goal.

Following the goal, the Portuguese ace was seen running off to perform his signature celebration. Ronaldo jumps up in the air and upon landing on the ground, he was met with the crowd chanting "SIIII" in unison.


Instead of just the former Real Madrid man shouting "Si!", all fans inside the 41,000-seater Allianz Stadium were also heard belting out the same.

Football fans across the world were delighted by the participation, with some pointing out that this is exactly the kind of respect that Ronaldo deserves.

What's next?

Juventus will next face Valencia in a Champions League group stage game on Wednesday.
