Chelsea defender Tomori smashes Ronaldo record in AC Milan triumph

AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori has nicked a Serie A record away from Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Tomori nodded in a third goal as Stefano Pioli's side ran out 3-0 winners over Juve on Sunday, putting a major dent in Ronaldo and Co's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

The on-loan Chelsea defender reached a staggering height of eight feet and seven inches inside the Allianz Stadium to surpass Ronaldo's record, which he set last season against Sampdoria.

Ronaldo, who is 6ft 2in tall, claimed the 'greatest leap' crown when he soared up to 8ft 5in against Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium during the 2019-20 campaign.

While that header left Europe stunned, Tomori, who stands at 6ft 1in, has now gone even higher as he towered above Juventus' Giorgio Chiellini to score from a height of 8ft 7in on Sunday.
