As Cristiano Ronaldo prepares for his upcoming season with Italian champions Juventus, the football superstar has been undergoing procedural medical checkups with the club’s staff, all who have been blown away by his physical condition.
According medical reports obtained by Diario AS, the 33-year-old Ronaldo has the physical capacity of a 20-year-old player. The report goes on to state that Ronaldo has only seven percent body fat, a muscle mass of 50 percent, and also recorded the fastest speed at the 2018 FIFA World Cup with 21.1mph. Ronaldo scores high above the average footballer, considering they have about three percent more body fat and four percent less muscle mass.
During the medical Ronaldo stated, “I’m here because it’s a very big challenge in my career. At my age, players usually go to China [...] I’m good emotionally, physically, that’s why the way I came here makes me proud, I’m different from everyone else, from all the players who are 32, 33 or 34 years old.”
Ronaldo made his official debut for Juventus on July 16 and has already managed to sell over 520,000 jerseys in 24 hours.
