MADRID (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo received his record fourth Golden Boot award on Tuesday after leading all scorers in Europe's domestic leagues last season.
Ronaldo scored 48 goals in 35 Spanish league games to claim his third Golden Boot playing for Real Madrid. His other award came with Manchester United in 2007-08. No other player has won four.
Ronaldo was accompanied at the gala by his mother, his son, Madrid coach Rafa Benitez, club president Florentino Perez and the Portuguese ambassador to Spain.
The 30-year-old Ronaldo became Madrid's all-time leading scorer on Sept. 30 with 324 goals, surpassing Raul Gonzalez's previous mark.
