Ronaldo posted a picture of him donning the famous white shirt whilst holding the Champions League trophy.

The image was taken after Madrid’s 3-1 Champions League victory over Liverpool in Kyiv in 2018 – the star’s fifth triumph in the competition and his last appearance for the club.

Alongside the picture, Ronaldo wrote: “Congratulations on these 122 years of history, Madridista family! Hala Madrid.”

Real Madrid, who were founded on March 6, 1902, are widely recognised as the best football club in the world.

They were awarded the Club of the Century award by FIFA at their World Gala in 2000 with 42.35 percent of the vote, for their unparalleled success in the last century.

Ronaldo secured an £80million switch to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009 after a six-year spell at Manchester United.

The forward smashed a host of club records during his nine years in the Spanish capital.

He netted a sensational 450 goals in 438 matches to become the highest goalscorer in the club’s history, while his 128 assists put him second on Madrid’s all-time list.

Ronaldo’s time at Madrid was littered with trophies having fired the club to four Champions League successes, two La Liga titles and two Copa del Rey wins.
