Ronaldo, 32, earlier became the only player alongside Alfredo Di Stefano to score in three different European Cup/Champions League finals.
The second half promised a lot, but if it didn't sustain itself as a contest, it provided the platform for Zidane's side to prove their greatness. What more could I ask?
Few footballers have made the pursuit of personal goals so advantageous to their team, few men have done so much for their team by being so focused on individual targets.
A good day at the office for the Ballon d'Or victor, then.
In total, his 600 goals have come from a remarkable 855 games.
"Zidane's half-time chat was positive. There was an incident there; we hope that not too many people were injured". I prepare for this.

"The people who always criticize Cristiano are going to have put their guitar back in its case", he said, via The Guardian.

"I am very happy, it is one of the best moments in my career". "Many people think about my very long career. This year awesome again, last year wonderful too".
Perez believes Ronaldo would be a worthy recipient of a record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or, adding to his successes in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016.
It took him seven minutes to get his first touch and it was hardly worth the wait, but Ronaldo was beginning to untangle himself from Juve's defensive web and he escaped to open the scoring in the 20th minute.
"It was a spectacular final", he said.
However, the veteran was left heartbroken as the Portuguese grabbed his second in between Casemiro and Marco Asensio goals as Zinedine Zidane's side wrapped up a 4-1 win.
Even though Bale was restricted to a cameo role, the 27-year-old was delighted to soak up the Madrid celebrations on his home turf.
Despite an early ending to his first National Basketball Association season a few months ago, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was still being his usual self on social media.
