Cristiano Ronaldo has etched his name in the annals of world football by emerging as the all-time top goal scorer.

Ronaldo scored his 760th goal in the Juventus clash against Napoli in the Italian Super Cup.

The goal put the Portugal captain above the Austrian-Czech striker Josef Bican, who had 759 goals.

Bican scored the 759 goals between 1931 and 1955.

Ronaldo’s goal not only secured the momentous landmark, but also helped Juventus clinch the trophy in a 2-0 win.

He found the back of the net in the 64th minute against Gennaro Gattuso’s men.

The goal came after a corner was swung over and Napoli fluffed their lines – leaving Ronaldo with the perfect opportunity to thump into the net left-footed.

Ronaldo’s rival Lionel Messi has 715 career goals for club and country.
