Fikayo Tomori Breaks Cristiano Ronaldo’s Record In Serie A

Cristiano Ronaldo on Sunday saw Fikayo Tomori strip him of one of his Serie A records in AC Milan's demolition job in Turin.

The on-loan Chelsea defender nodded in a third goal as Stefano Pioli's side ran out 3-0 winners over Juve, putting a major dent in Ronaldo and Co's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Tomori reached a staggering height of eight feet and seven inches inside the Allianz Stadium to surpass Ronaldo's record, which he set last season against Sampdoria.

Ronaldo, who is 6ft 2in tall, claimed the ‘greatest leap' crown when he soared up to 8ft 5in against Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium during the 2019-20 campaign.

While that header left Europe stunned, Tomori, who stands at 6ft 1in, has now gone even higher as he towered above Juventus' Giorgio Chiellini to score from a height of 8ft 7in on Sunday.

Hakan Calhanoglu's free-kick was swung in with venom towards Tomori, and his centre back partner Simon Kjaer, and it was the 23-year-old who jumped highest to meet the delivery and head the ball into the bottom corner.
