Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his 500th career league goal while playing in the Saudi Pro League.

Ronaldo scored four goals to help his side Al Nassr beat Al Wehda 4-0 in the Saudi Pro League.

The Portugal forward, who turned 38 on Sunday, struck in a 40-minute period on either side of the break.

He has now scored 503 league goals for five different clubs in five different leagues.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner joined Al Nassr in December, reportedly on a salary of $339m per year.

Ronaldo left Manchester United in November, having scored 103 league goals across two spells at the club.

Ronaldo’s four goals ensured Al Nassr returned to the top of the table on goal difference and with a game in hand on second-placed Al Shabab.

Pele is credited with having scored 604 league goals.
