Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo will be 36 years of age in just 2 months time but he is still going strong with Juventus and Portugal. He is one of the leading scorers for Juventus during his time in Serie A and is also on the verge of breaking the record for the highest number of international goals scored by a player.
Ronaldo would hope to continue his blistering form late into his 30s or even into his early 40s as he shows no signs of stopping in the near future. He is ageing like fine wine!
