Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his birthday today and has received messages from stars and fellow teammates

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his 35th, yes 35th, birthday today and the footballing world have been sending him celebratory messages.

The Portuguese forward shows no signs of slowing down as he gets older, instead getting better like a fine wine. 

His conversion from the penalty spot against Fiorentina at the weekend equalled a club record ninth-straight game scoring. If he manages to do this in the next three matches, he will set a Serie A record too!

Instead of taking the day off and relaxing like most of us would on our birthdays, Juventus' record signing instead was raring to go in training. 

The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid has received messages online via team mates such as Blaise Matuidi and Merih Demiral who both can't quite believe his age.

British journalist and Arsenal fan Piers Morgan, who is a huge admirer of Ronaldo, joked in his message suggesting the five-time Champions League winner should join the North London club. 

Two time middleweight boxing champion Gennadiy Golovkin wished the 'champ' a happy birthday.

During his time with the Italian Champions, CR7 has netted 40 times and assisted on 10 occassions. Simply incredible statistics.
