Juventus lifted the Serie A title for record 36th time following 2-0 win over Sampdoria. It was Juventus' ninth consecutive Serie A title win. Cristiano Ronaldo and Federico Bernardeschi were the ones who netted for Juventus. Following Juventus' win FIFA congratulated Ronaldo for a 'unique feat', which wasn't the case. FIFA in their tweet mentioned that no other player apart from Ronaldo has won all three leagues once. The tweet was, however, deleted later following Ronaldo's teammate and Juventus defender Danilo Luiz puzzled reaction.

FIFA were factually incorrect and before they could delete the tweet Danilo, who actually happens to be the other player to have won all multiple titles in England, Spain and Italy, retweeted the post with four thinking emoticons.
For the uninitiated, before adding Serie A title win to his list of winners, Danilo won Primeira Liga twice with Porto in 2012 and 2013, La Liga with Real Madrid in 2017, and Premier League with Manchester City in 2018 and 2019.
