The 38-year-old, who became the world’s highest paid athlete when he joined the Saudi club, proved his potency in front of goal on Thursday night with a sublime display of finishing.
He opened his account at the King Abdulaziz Stadium with a powerful effort in the 21st minute before netting a second shortly before half-time.
Then, after referee Al-Harbi awarded Al Nassr a penalty for handball, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner converted from the spot to complete his 61st career hat-trick.
Shortly after the hour mark, those inside the 38,000 capacity stadium produced their loudest SUI of the evening when Ronaldo scored his fourth and final goal of the game.
It was a memorable night for the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward, who also reached the milestone of 500 career league goals.
And after the full-time whistle, the Al Nassr captain wanted to commemorate his achievement by getting the referee to pen his signature on the match ball.

He’ll most likely keep this one, unlike his 60th hat-trick ball that belongs to former Manchester United teammate Alejandro Garnacho.
