Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo says he feels honoured to have become the first player to reach 100 goals in European competition.

The 32-year-old reached the impressive milestone on Wednesday when he scored a brace for Los Merengues in the 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He told Real's official website: "It's a great honour to reach 100 goals in Europe. Yesterday was a special day, with a very important win.

"I'm very happy. I want to thank Real Madrid for the opportunity to build a wonderful career at this club, and to my teammates as well.

"Many thanks to the club, my teammates and the fans."

He added: "When I started scoring goals in the Champions League, I never imagined I'd beat this record. For me it's an honour to reach such a difficult figure. I'm absolutely thrilled, really happy."

In his first 32 European games, Ronaldo managed only one goal, but has gone on to reach 100 goals in only 143.
