Ex-Real Madrid Doctor Says Cristiano Ronaldo Is Not The Best Athlete He's Worked With

A former Real Madrid doctor says Cristiano Ronaldo is not the best athlete he has seen.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner remains a physical specimen at the ripe old age of 35, with his strength, jumping ability and speed all at an incredible level.

Ronaldo has recently returned to Juventus in better condition than he was before lockdown commenced, while he's also been using rugby studs in an attempt to run even faster than 38.6km/h he clocked earlier this year.

But despite the Portuguese superstar being viewed as one of a kind, Jesus Olmo, who worked with him at Real Madrid, believes Gareth Bale is a more complete athlete.

"Possibly the best athlete I've seen is Gareth Bale," Olmo told Ideal.

"He's a natural athlete capable of excelling at practically any sport. He has unusual genetics and athletic ability, and I would say technical ability as well.

"He's the one who impressed me most in all aspects, although there is then performance, which comes about from different circumstances."

Having once been a scrawny kid at Southampton back in the day, Bale has undergone a ridiculous body transformation over the years and so it's understandable that Olmo was impressed with his qualities.

The power in his legs has allowed him to explode out of the traps and leave defenders eating his dust.

The Welsh wing wizard once reached a ridiculous top speed of 22mph to score against Real Sociedad in 2017, covering 75 metres and demonstrating some serious raw pace en route to finding the net.
