Cristiano Ronaldo has won UEFA’s goal of the season for his stunning bicycle kick against Juventus.

The former Real Madrid man, who now plays for the Italian club, beat competition from 11 nominees including Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The five-time Ballon D’Or winner received a standing ovation from opposing fans for the strike, an act which Ronaldo admits influenced his summer move to Turin.
