CRISTIANO RONALDO delivered even more late drama last night with his injury-time equaliser at Atalanta.
The Portuguese superstar saved Manchester United again as he struck at the death in a 2-2 draw.
Ronaldo's efforts drew comparisons from his manager to Michael Jordan – another sporting great who came up trumps late in games.
But it's not the first time Ronaldo has delivered a late plot twist in games.
And his best last-gasp strikes have been ranked in new research according to the number of YouTube views they have racked up.
Ticketgum.com found official YouTube highlights of games in which the 36-year-old has struck at the death.
And they came up with a table based on the number of views each match has had.
Ronaldo's late equaliser against Atalanta last night had 1,024,270 views on the YouTube BT Sport highlights.
That's still a long way shy of the views that his last-ditch goal in Juventus' 2-1 win over Udinese in May racked up (7,328,691).

And some of his other Serie A goals have proved incredibly popular too on YouTube.
The Juventus vs Genoa highlights from October 2019 had 6,676,470 views while Juve against Lazio in January 2019 had 5,857,457.
Ronaldo scored in both games and Juventus edged them both 2-1.
The 2-0 win over Frosinone in September 2018 also had just over five million YouTube views.
Ronaldo's late heroics in Man Utd's clash with Villarreal earlier this season had the fifth most watches with 2,725,456.
Some of his late strikes for Real Madrid were also on the list – including the 2016 El Clasico (2,683,410) which Real won 2-1.
It's worth noting the geographic restrictions that apply to certain videos.
For instance, the BT Sport highlights of Champions League can only be viewed in the UK.
But Serie A clips are posted for users around the world to watch, which could explain why Ronaldo's Juventus heroics have been watched by millions.
