In the match of the 27th round of Serie A against "Cagliari" (3: 1), Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and brought the total number of goals scored in his career to 770 overcoming Pele (767 goals).

"Today, as I reach the 770th official goals in my professional career, my first words go straight to Pele"- wrote Ronaldo.

Cristiano wrote that he as other football players raised listening to stories about Pele’s games, his goals, and his achievements, and now he is proud to lead the World’s goalscoring list, overcoming Pele’s record.

The "king of football" Pele appealed to Ronaldo. The legendary Brazilian constantly notes that in fact, his indicators are much higher, but today he did not argue and tweeted: "Cristiano, what a wonderful trip you have! I admire you very much, and it's not a secret to anyone. Congratulations on improving my result in official matches. I leave this picture in your honor as a symbol of a friendship that has lasted for many years."
