"He's the best in history, no doubt. Nobody has done what Messi's done. The other one [Ronaldo] is complete, he has it all.

"So does Messi, but it's a question of taste and I prefer Messi's style."

Ronaldo, 43, praised five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano and said that he is "out of this world" like Messi.
