Portugal and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered to be one of the greatest footballers in the history of the sport, with the striker winning a number of professional and personal honours during his career, including five Ballon d'Or awards.

The 34-year-old is not only wildly popular on the pitch, but off the pitch too with every move he makes becoming a topic of conversation among both his fans and critics and his recent post on social networking site, Twitter was no different.

Known for his spectacular physique and his intense dedication to diet and fitness, the 34-year-old caused flutters by posting another spectacular image of his shirtless on Twitter which has gone viral.

The picture which is black and white in colour while showing off his wet chest, with the caption "charging" has more than 200,000 likes, more than 2000 comments and has been shared more than 12,000 times at the time of writing.

After a poor start to the season, the Portugese star has rediscovered his best form, netting 16 goals in 17 ​Serie A appearances to take Juventus to the top of the league table, with 51 points from 20 games, four ahead of second placed, Inter Milan.

It is in Europe though where Juve will want their star player to make a difference as they look to win their first Champions League title since 1996.
