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.
Ronaldo is set to make his debut for Juventus in their opening fixture of the 2018-19 Serie A season, away to Chievo on Saturday, Aug. 18.
One thing's for certain: He looks ready and raring to go.
