How do multiple clients connect simultaneously to one port, say 80, on a server? [duplicate]

I understand the basics of how ports work. However, what I don’t get is how multiple clients can simultaneously connect to say port 80. I know each client has a unique (for their machine) port. Does the server reply back from an available port to the client, and simply state the reply came from 80? How does this work?
