Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to Instagram in the wake of Real Madrid's 3-0 derby win over Atlético Madrid to recreate the aftermath of one of his goals.

New celebration as treble sees off city rivals

The Portuguese ace grabbed a hat-trick at the Calderón on Saturday evening to see Real move four points clear of Barcelona at the top of the LaLiga table.

And Cristiano's second of the night brought a previously unseen celebration as he adopted a crouching look reminiscent of Auguste Rodin's sculpture 'the Thinker'.

On Sunday, he then posted a photograph of himself repeating the pose alongside his young son and other kids, with the caption: "The boys make fun of me".

The internet reacts

The celebration has been the subject of social-media amusement, with tweeters such as the three below publishing images of 'CR7' in a host of funny situations:
