Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala practice volleys during Juventus preseason training

Having come through his final pre-season medical checks unscathed, Cristiano Ronaldo kicked off his Juventus career by taking part in his maiden training session as a Bianconeri player on Tuesday afternoon.

One of Ronaldo's first bits of active duty was to act as spotter for Paulo Dybala as the Argentinian forward warmed up with a few recumbent volleys.

Indeed, the session seemed to involve quite a lot of floor-based shenanigans, as the Juve players clambered down on their mats to stretch and contort.

Ronaldo then impressed his new colleagues by flexing his muscles to score a nonchalant Mario Balotelli-esque shoulder goal during a shooting drill.

The heat seemed to get the better of Dybala, who appeared to spring a leak amid the summer swelter in Turin.

However, everything ended on a positive note as Ronaldo and Dybala were finally allowed to enjoy some shady respite while posing for a group shot alongside Juan Cuadrado, Gonzalo Higuain and the lads.

Primeiro treino duro. Trabalho feito!👍🏽💪🏽
