After receiving the award, Ronaldo posted on my Instagram:
This is a special moment in my professional life! To win four "Golden boots" is a great privilege, but I'm not going to stop there because we want to achieve even better results and deliver more records. Thank you all in "real Madrid", who helped this to happen. We will continue to win titles and trophies. Thank you all.
