Serie A: Fikayo Tomori breaks Cristiano Ronaldo record


On-loan Chelsea defender, Fikayo Tomori, has broken Cristiano Ronaldo's record for height climbed in heading in a goal.

Tomori nodded in the last goal as Milan beat Ronaldo's Juventus 3-0 last weekend.

He reached a staggering height of eight feet and seven inches, 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 2019/2020 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
