Pele has congratulated Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugal forward's hat-trick against Cagliari took him past the Brazilian legend's tally of goals scored in official matches.

Ronaldo netted three times inside the opening 32 minutes to take his career total to 770 - three clear of Pele's tally of 767. Some reports suggest this is a world record tally but that is dispute by the Czech Football Association, which claims former Austria and Czechoslovakia striker Josef Bican is football's true all-time top scorer with 821 goals.
