Cristiano Ronaldo's trademark free kick is a thing of beauty when it's done right, and yesterday in Real Madrid's game against Real Sociedad, he smashed in this beautiful free kick on his way to round off his hat trick in style.

There's absolutely nothing that the players in the wall or the goalkeeper can do, and if the scoreline of 5-1 was anything to go by, it was a torrid afternoon for the men from San Sebastián.

If you fancy seeing the rest of the goals including Ronaldo's two others, you can check out the highlights here. Benzema and Kehdira were also on the scoresheet (all before the 35 minute mark), but Griezmann's consolation for Sociedad was a lovely goal and well worth a look.
