Cristiano Ronaldo has been congratulated on passing Pele in the international scoring charts by the man himself.

The Real Madrid superstar took his international goal tally for Portugal to 78 on Thursday by bagging a hat-trick in a World Cup qualifying clash with the Faroe Islands.

Ronaldo’s treble heroics have carried him above legendary Brazilian Pele and into the top five on the all-time list.

Already a four-time Ballon d’Or winner and the leading marksman in the illustrious history of his club employers, the 32-year-old continues to set records tumbling at every turn.
