Cristiano Ronaldo has broken yet another record, this time just by setting foot on the pitch at the Santiago Bernabéu against Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has added yet another record to his collection, becoming the Champions League's record outfield appearance holder.

Ronaldo pips Xavi

The former Manchester United star made his 152nd Champions League appearance in the second leg of Madrid's semi-final with Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

That saw him surpass previous record holder Xavi, who played in 151 games in the competition in his glittering career with Barcelona.

Ronaldo's former Real Madrid team-mate, Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas, holds the record for the most appearances by any player with 167.

Madrid went into the second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu holding a 2-1 lead from the first game at the Allianz Arena.
