Cristiano Ronaldo sulks in stands after being denied Golden Boot – but cheers up to lift Serie A trophy with Juventus

CRISTIANO RONALDO went from gloom to boom as he cheered up after missing out on the Golden Boot.

The Portuguese superstar looked fed up as Lazio striker Ciro Immobile scooped the top scorer award with 36 goals.

Juventus star Ronaldo finished on 31 goals after being left out of the squad as boss Maurizio Sarri rested his star for their Champions League clash with Lyon.

He would have needed five in the end to match Immobile, who scored in Lazio’s final game – a 3-1 defeat at Napoli.

But the five-time Ballon d’Or winner cheered up to celebrate the Serie A title.

It was his second crown since joining Juve from Real Madrid in a £99million deal in 2018.

He has bagged an astonishing 46 goals for club and country this term – and does not look like letting up as he moves into his 36th year.

The Old Lady lost 3-1 at home to Roma in their final match.

But they had already wrapped up the title and were presented with it afterwards.

It was their first home loss in Turin for 40 matches.

But the former Manchester United star was all smiles as he collected his medal and lifted the trophy.

Gonzalo Higuain gave Sarri’s side a fifth-minute lead but Nikola Kalinic headed in to put Roma level.

Diego Perotti struck twice to give Inter the victory.

Inter beat Atalanta 2-0 to come second in the table, just a point behind Juve.
