Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new record at the club after they wrapped up an eighth successive Italian Serie A title earlier on Saturday.

Ronaldo and Juventus knew that a home win over Fiorentina was more than enough to hand them a 34th league title and that was exactly what happened.

Juventus had to come from behind to seal an eighth title with a 2-1 win over a stubborn Fiorentina.

Nikola Milenkovic gave Fiorentina a shock 6th-minute lead only for Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro to equalise for his team.

Ronaldo then forced Germaine Pezzella into an own goal to eventually give the Old Lady a slim home win.

With the Premier League title in the bag, Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to win the top three major leagues.

Ronaldo has earlier won the league title in the top flight of English football before he made the decision to join Spanish giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 for a then world-record fee of around £80m.

He went on to win two Spanish La Liga titles for Real Madrid during the 2011/12 season while Jose Mourinho was in charge of the team and the 2016/17 season under the guidance of French football legend Zinedine Zidane who also led the club to three straight Champions League titles.
