Cristiano Ronaldo's ridiculous bicycle-kick goal has sent the soccer world into a frenzy.

There’s no accurate way to describe what Ronaldo pulled off during the first leg of Real Madrid’s Champions League quarterfinal match at Juventus.

With his back to goal, Ronaldo launched himself into the air to meet Dani Carvajal's chipped ball and produced a perfectly-executed bicycle shot which flew past keeper Gianluigi Buffon and put Real 2-0 ahead.

The goal was greeted by applause even from Juventus fans who only minutes earlier had hounded and insulted Ronaldo when he shot wide.

The Portuguese had got Real off the mark with a third-minute goal, scoring for a record 10th successive Champions League game, and Marcelo was also on target as Juve's five-year unbeaten home record in European competition crumbled. His goal eventually lead Real Madrid to an emphatic 3-0 win away to Juventus.

As for Ronaldo, even Juventus fans rose and gave him a standing ovation.

And Twitterati joined the party.

"One of the most beautiful goals in the history of football," said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

"Cristiano does things sometimes that only he can do. "It can be said that it is one of the most beautiful goals in the history of football," he further added.
