GARETH BALE is a better athlete than Cristiano Ronaldo, according to ex-Real Madrid doctor Jesus Olmo.
Juventus star Ronaldo is famed for his physique and even maintains it at the age of 35 but Olmo reckons ex-Tottenham man Bale is the best athlete he has ever seen.
Having been teammates during Olmo’s time at the Bernabeu, Bale and CR7 probably have their own ideas about who keeps in better shape but the Portuguese doc was in no doubt.
The ex-Los Blancos doctor told Ideal: “Perhaps the best athlete I’ve ever seen is Bale.
“Gareth Bale is a natural athlete who can excel in practically any sport.
“He has incredible athletic skills, and I would also say technical skills.
“He is the one who impressed me most in all aspects.”
The medical expert also said Real Madrid fans have not yet seen the best of the Welsh wizard during his time in Spain, because he was suffering from several injuries.
After Ronaldo leapt 8ft 5ins into the air to score a header against Sampdoria in December he revealed his fitness secrets that keep him going and claimed he could play on until he was 41.
And the Portuguese mega-star was recently said to be using rugby studs in his boots to make him EVEN FASTER on the pitch ahead of Serie A’s return.
