Cristiano Ronaldo did 142 toe touches on a mat under 60 seconds to set a mark for his fans to beat in his new Living Room Cup challenge.
The 35-year-old is currently self-isolating with his family amid the global pandemic in his hometown of Madeira in Portugal.

He wrote under the clip: “Hey guys, I have a new challenge for you to stay active: the Living Room Cup.
“Can you step up and beat my core crusher record?
“Show me what you got and use #livingroomcup #playinside @nike @cristiano so I can see you!”
Ronaldo's Juventus teammate and France international Blaise Matuidi was first to respond to the challenge and the World winner claimed he had done 144 toe touches.
He said: “Cristiano, you killed me bro. Next time we run! #Playinside #Livingroomcup.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has made lots of enemies in the game and former Chievo goalkeeper Stefan Sorrentino recalls the Juventus striker refused to give him his shirt after a league match.
On January 21, 2019, Juve defeated Chievo in a league game by 3-0 but Ronaldo's name was not on the scoresheet which did not make him happy afterwards.
The 41-year-old goalkeeper had earlier met Ronaldo that he would love to have his shirt after the match but the reverse was the case.
But the Italian goalkeeper told Sky Sports that he ended up swapping shirts with Ronaldo's teammate Paulo Dybala.
Legit.ng reported that Cristiano Ronaldo sent a strange text message to his former Juventus teammate Medhi Benatia by 11pm, asking him if they could train together.
The Moroccan defender who now plays for Qatar side Al-Duhail SC told the story of how the incident occurred after a league match.
Benatia and Ronaldo were unused subs in a game and when they got into the team bus, the Portuguese striker began to text his teammate after hitting the gym late at night.
