Video: Did you see Cristiano Ronaldo's phenomenal AFL-style leap against Osasuna last night?

A career in Aussie Rules is definitely an option for the Portuguese super star

As well as being blessed with exceptional pace, a tremendous shot and a vast array of other skills, Cristiano Ronaldo also has NBA-esque hops. His jumping ability means he is always a threat in the air and in a bid to reach a cross by Marcelo in last night's game against Osasuna, Ronaldo climbed higher than we think we have ever seen before, at least in soccer.

Perhaps Ronnie had a little help from team-mate Karim Benzema, and the Frenchman does end up in some discomfort afterwards, but it is still a hell of a height he manages to achieve.

Ronaldo still didn't get high enough to nod the ball home, despite reaching it, but Real won the Copa del Rey game 2-0 anyway.
