Even though Cristiano Ronaldo is 38 years old, he is still very strong when fighting from the air. The Portuguese player just beat the old mark.
Ronaldo once again shocked fans when he “froze in the air.”
Al Nassr beat Al Akhdoud 3-0 on November 25. Two goals were scored by Cristiano Ronaldo in this game. In addition, the Portuguese player made another great play in this game. That was the case when he jumped high and ran to the middle of the field to fight for a high ball.

Ronaldo does the move called “freezing in the air” again.
Computer estimates show that Ronaldo jumped up to 2m98 at this point. In a real game, this is the most points a football player can get. Ronaldo still holds the record, which was set in 2:93.
Also, Ronaldo jumped 2 meters 9 inches for the first time when he was 38 years old. He did it in the 2m93 high jump when he was only 28 years old. This means that Ronaldo is still strong even though he is older. Some might even say that the Portuguese player is stronger now.

Overall, Ronaldo has been the most helpful in the 10 cases where he has grabbed the most balls in football history. The 38-year-old player also holds three other records with the numbers 2m44 (twice) and 2m56, in addition to the ones already called out.
Cristiano Ronaldo has the best jump in the history of football right now.
Players who can jump higher have an edge when they’re competing in the air and scoring goals. Few people are better than Cristiano Ronaldo at this skill. At this point, the Portuguese ace has scored 145 goals with his head, which is more than anyone else in history.
Recently, Sport Brief put out a list of the 10 highest jumps ever recorded in football history. Ronaldo was in 5 of those places.
Ronaldo had a great game when Real played their rivals Osasuna in November 2011. The Portuguese forward scored three goals, which helped the home team win 7-1. The most talked-about thing, though, is Ronaldo’s amazing jump. After getting a free kick on the right wing, CR7 jumped 2m44 high to head the ball in.
Ronaldo holds the record for the highest jumps in football history.
Ronaldo continued to beat his old record of 2m44 when he moved to play for Juventus. The game between Juventus and Torino in Turin had this ball. In the 84th minute, there was a high ball that Ronaldo jumped 2m44 high and shot in to tie the game. This chance to score led to a good draw for Juventus.
During the Serie A game between Juventus and Sassuolo in January 2021, Ronaldo once again showed how great he is at jumping. The Portuguese star jumped 2m44 feet high, beating goalie Andrea Consigli in a battle of the air, even though the other team’s goalkeeper had the upper hand.
Not long ago, legendary player Ibrahimovic said he was retiring after almost 25 years of competitive football. During his career, the Swedish shooter was known for his well-executed goals, long shots, and jumps.
In February 2020, when AC Milan played Inter Milan, Ibrahimovic jumped up to 2m53 to help Ante Rebic score the first goal.
Once again Ronaldo appears on the list. In the match between Juventus and Sampdoria at the end of 2019, CR7 jumped up to 2m56 and scored from Alex Sandro’s cross. Juventus thus won 2-1, gaining 3 valuable points.
Osimhen had a brilliant 2022-2023 season when he scored 26 goals for Napoli in Serie A. The striker’s goals helped Napoli win its first national championship since 1990.
One of Osimhen’s most memorable goals last season came in January 2023, when this player jumped to an incredible height of 2m58, scoring a goal against Spezia.
The record holder for the highest jump in Serie A history is not Ronaldo. This achievement belongs to English midfielder Fikayo Tomori. In May 2021, this player jumped 2m61 and scored a goal that contributed to AC Milan’s 3-0 victory over Juventus.
Mugabi may be an unknown name in the football world. However, a jump of up to 2m62 in February 2021 helped the player who was then part of the Motherwell team be remembered. From this situation, the Ugandan midfielder scored a beautiful goal for the home team against Ross County.
En-Nesyri is the player with the highest rebound ever recorded in World Cup history. In the match against Portugal at the 2022 World Cup, the Sevilla player jumped up to 2m78, scoring a valuable goal for Morocco. This goal helped Morocco become the first team from Africa to reach the semi-finals of a World Cup.
Ronaldo is the only name that should be in the number one spot. In March 2013, the Portuguese great did a jump of up to 2m93 that shocked Patrice Evra, who used to play for him.
In this case, Ronaldo made a goal that tied Real and Manchester United 1-1 in the first leg of the 1/8 round of the 2012–13 C1 Cup.
