Cristiano Ronaldo Even Admits "He Is A Different Athlete, A Different Person, With A Different Brain"

Cristiano Ronaldo Even Admits "He Is A Different Athlete, A Different Person, With A Different Brain"

In the kindest way possible, Cristiano Ronaldo is a freak of nature. The man has a different mentality to others, striving for greatness at every turn.

He'll do whatever it takes to get to the top. I mean, just look at his medical results at new club Juventus, for example.

His physical state was compared to a 20 year old after his medical tests indicated that he has 7% body fat and an incredible 50% muscle mass, which is significantly better than his fellow professionals of that specific age group.

Before he even joined the Turin side, Real Madrid's coaching staff performed a series of tests on Cristiano Ronaldo's body and the results indicate that he had the physical condition of a 23-year old.

It was reported that the 33-year-old has the fat content of 7%. If you compare this to other footballers, the average is around 10 or 11%, according to a report from Spanish publication AS.

Ronaldo also has a muscle mass of 50%, and again, if you compare it again to other professionals, the usual figure doesn't exceed 46%.

We all know that CR7 is a completely different animal to thousands of other players, but how does the man himself assess his overall game and mentality?

"At my age, no player goes from my great club to another for €100m. I am a different athlete, a different person, with a different brain." Ronaldo said in an exclusive interview with France Football.

"Maybe that's why I've been on the mountain top for twelve years."

"At my age, and with respect to those who have done this, they go to China, the Emirates, or India, and finish their career without having to maintain their level."

He's not human, I swear.
