After the exit of Portugal from the 2018 FIFA World Cup even it wasn’t shocking enough for football fans across the world, Cristiano Ronaldo dropped another bomb on them, after it was announced that the Real Madrid star is leaving the club to join Juventus.
The deal wasn’t an ordinary development either. Looks like, Cristiano Ronaldo was so happy and excited to join Juventus that he gave Rs. 16 lakh as a tip to the hotel staff in Greece, where he was vacationing with his family.
Anyway, coming back to Ronaldo and Juventus, the reason we’re talking about the two is Ronaldo’s medical test with Juventus. Looks like Juventus signed this massive deal to bring onboard a Ronaldo, who is 20-year-old and not 33.
Despite being 33-years-old and way older than many footballers out there, the medical report reveals that the striker’s physical fitness is similar to that of a 20-year-old. Does this mean he’s just a year older than Kylian Mbappe?
These statistics were calculated using his body fat, his muscular mass and speed. According to reports, Ronaldo has 7% body fat, 50% muscular mass and recorded a top speed 33.98km at the World Cup, which is said to be the fastest in the tournament.
Is it just me or is 30+ actually the new 20? Because while we are impressed with Ronaldo’s physical statistics, he’s not the only sportsperson with such great fitness and athleticism. We have our ‘Captain Cool’ MS Dhoni, who at the age of 36, defeated Hardik Pandya, who is 12 years younger than Dhoni, in a 100 meter race.
We guess the younger players really need to take a lesson or two from champions like Ronaldo and Dhoni on how to ace their respective sports and up their fitness game as well.
