sport news star Cristiano Ronaldo is 'best in the world'

Zinedine Zidane declared Cristiano Ronaldo 'the best in the world' after he marked his return by scoring twice in the 3-0 Champions League victory over APOEL Nicosia.

Ronaldo is currently four games into a five-match domestic ban for pushing the referee after being sent off in the Spanish Supercopa clash with Barcelona last month.

But Ronaldo was as sharp as ever in taking his Champions League goals tally to 107 with a close-range effort and a second-half penalty.
