Usain Bolt, the world record holder, and eight-time Olympic champion believe that Cristiano Ronaldo, the five-time winner, and footballer of the Ballon d’Or, is quicker.
Usain Bolt insists that superstar Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Portugal is “definitely quicker than him.”
Bolt retired from athletics in 2017, but the 8-time Olympic gold medalist still holds world records of over 100 and 200 meters, respectively.
Yet Bolt feels that Ronaldo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, and footballer, is faster.
“Cristiano [is quicker than me for sure,” said Marca Sports Weekend to Manchester United fan Bolt, who also tried to build a post-athletics football career after trials with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and A-League side Central Coast Mariners.
“For me every day he works out he’s a super athlete. He’s always on top of his game, he works hard and he’s focused. I certainly think he’s going to be quicker than me right now.”
