Ex-Real Madrid doctor revealed Gareth Bale is best athlete he’s ever seen over legend Cristiano Ronaldo – The Sun | The Sun

GARETH BALE is a better athlete than Cristiano Ronaldo, according to ex-Real Madrid doctor Jesus Olmo.

Manchester United star Ronaldo is famed for his physique and even maintains it at the age of 37 but Olmo reckons Bale is the best athlete he has ever seen.

Having been team-mates 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 previously told Ideal in 2020: "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.

The medical expert also said Real Madrid fans did not see the best of the Welsh wizard during his time in Spain, because he was suffering from several injuries.

Bale, 33, played just seven games for Los Blancos last season and left to play in the MLS with Los Angeles FC.

After Ronaldo leapt 8ft 5ins into the air to score a header against Sampdoria in 2019 he revealed his fitness secrets that keep him going and claimed he could play on until he was 41.

His mum Dolores also backed up his claim earlier this year.

The Madeira-based mum-of-four told presenter and comedian Guilherme Geirinhas: “I’ve already asked him if he wants to be a coach when he stops playing.

“He told me he wants to enjoy life. He’ll play until he’s 40.”
