Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo is in awe of Radamel Falcao after his five goals on the weekend.
The Colombian struck a stunning five in their 6-0 thumping of Deportivo La Coruna.
"He is the best striker in the world," Cerezo said.
"It is the first time I have seen one of our players score five. I remember Christian Vieri or Milinko Pantic scoring four, but not five.
"At the current time he is by far the best forward in world football."
