He's back: Cristiano Ronaldo made his return to the pitch with Manchester United on Saturday and what a scene it was at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo scored twice to lead Manchester United to a 4-1 victory over Newcastle as the five-time Ballon d'Or winner donned his iconic No. 7 jersey once again following a deal with Juventus during the European transfer window earlier this month.

Here are the must-see moments from Ronaldo's return.
