The internet is full of footage of the goals and moments of impressive skill by Cristiano Ronaldo and the Brazilian Ronaldo.

But now we're being fed the goalscoring exploits of a third Ronaldo. This time it's Ronaldo Jr who is following in his father's footsteps at Juventus after their summer move to Turin.

Ronaldo Jr features for Juve's Under 9 side and certainly has an eye for goal judging by the clip uploaded to Twitter by his father.

The youngster makes it looks easy as he strolls around his opponents, including the goalkeeper for this first of his two strikes.

Ronaldo senior has scored five times in his first eight matches for Juventus, who have won all of their Serie A matches so far this season.

He hasn't been involved during the international week, having not been selected for Portugal's victories over Poland and Scotland. He will also miss the international fixtures in November but is expected to return to action for Portugal in 2019.

Juventus are back in action on Saturday when they host Genoa in Serie A.

There's a number of other current footballers who are following their famous fathers in having successful careers.

Justin Kluivert, son of Patrick, moved to Roma in the summer from Ajax and is now a Netherlands international, while Diego Simeone's son Giovanni scored his first goal for Argentina last month and Timothy Weah, son of the legendary George Weah, is doing well at Paris Saint-Germain.
