"For 20 consecutive years I have played and scored as a professional, I didn't know there was another record to beat," Ronaldo said, as per The Sun.

"It's a pleasure to hear about the records, I have achieved all this but without my teammates, without a great team, I would not have achieved these records."

Ronaldo has now added the Player of the Century award to the Golden Foot accolade that he won earlier this month.

FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year, Robert Lewandowski was named the Player of the Year while 13-time UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid were named the Club of Century.
