And the Jamaican sprint legend has now weighed in, siding with Ronaldo for his legendary spell at Manchester United.
That's despite supporting Messi's Argentina on the international stage.
He told Gazetta dello Sport: "It is difficult for me to choose because I support Argentina, but I am a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I admire Ronaldo since he played for Manchester United and I support the Red Devils."
Bolt continued by explaining his pick, saying that Ronaldo has proven himself across different leagues unlike Messi who has enjoyed his whole career in Spain's top flight.
"I think he has something more than Messi because he has proven himself in many leagues," he added.
"That's why I choose Ronaldo."
