The Manchester United forward became the first player to reach 800 top-level goals against Arsenal.
A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Manchester United claim a comeback 2-1 win against Arsenal in the Premier League on Thursday night, prompting roars of acclaim from African supporters.
There was substance to his latest goals, as the 36-year-old hit 800 and 801 career goals, making him the first player in history to do so at the top level.
There is some debate over his status as the most prolific scorer in men's football, but that did not stop reactions from coming in from across the continent as he reached 12 goals since he re-joined the Red Devils over the summer.
While African fans generally lauded the Portugal superstar for his amazing track record, there were one or two of the continent's supporters who didn't appear too impressed with his goal haul.
