球員生涯滿載榮耀的 Cristiano Ronaldo 即便已來到對職業運動員來說幾近黃昏的 34 歲高齡，仍舊是球場上的一大殺器，在早先 Juventus 對上 Sampdoria 的比賽中，Cristiano 為了接獲傳球，助跑起跳以頭槌擊球成功入網，奠定勝基。據 ESPN UK 分析指出其跳躍高度約 71 公分，最高滯空點為 256 公分，滯空時間長達 1.5 秒，賽後敵方教頭 Claudio Ranieri 更指出「他做出了你會在 NBA 看到的事情，他在空中待了一個半小時，我對此無話可說，只能恭喜他並且繼續努力。」而這一美技在網上自然也引起了極大迴響，能夠看到網民們都對此相當驚艷甚至瘋狂。
?? This picture of Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal against Sampodria tonight is absolutely insane. 2.56m in the air when he connected with the header (8ft 5 in the air). This man is a freak athlete.
Air Cristiano. ✈️ pic.twitter.com/YBs6R8gdm9

If Roy Keane was doing punditry on this he’d say the only reason Ronaldo needed to defy gravity like that is because he timed his jump wrong in the first place pic.twitter.com/912z6kUy98

Will never, ever understand how Ronaldo can get so much height on his jumps. Superhuman.

Ronaldo has just scored a far post header where his feet were higher than the crossbar….it’s only a slight exaggeration. Ridiculous leap.
