Cristiano Ronaldo completed his move from Real Madrid to Juventus for a reported fee of 104 million pounds earlier this month after spending nine seasons with the Spanish club. Prior to being announced as a Juve player, the Portuguese underwent a customary medical at the club.
And now, the results of the test have shocked the world, if they are to be believed! The results from his medical have revealed that Ronaldo, who is 33, has a body of a 20-year-old.
It is reported that the Portuguese has a body fat of just 7%, while an average professional would have 10% of body fat. And another amazing fact which came out is that the five-time Ballon d'Or has a muscle mass of 50%.
The Portugese was also the fastest player in the recently concluded World Cup 2018, recording a speed of 33.98 km/ph during one of the matches. He scored four goals in the tournament, but could not do much as Portugal crashed out in the round if 16.
Juventus' new boy is one of the 10 players to have been shortlisted for the FIFA Men's Player of the Year award. Ronaldo is in contention to win for a third consecutive year after breaking many records during the course of Real Madrid's triumphant 2017-18 UCL campaign.
Lionel Messi, who enjoyed a stellar season with Barcelona after guiding them to the domestic double, is also among the front-runners to win the award. But, however, Ronaldo and Messi, who have dominated the sport's individual sporting awards for a decade, were knocked out with their respective national teams in the Round of 16 at Russia.
Luka Modric could spring a surprise at this year's awards. He was a key player in Croatia's fairtytale run in Russia, and also helped Real Madrid to their third consecutive Champions League title.
Kylian Mbappe, who won the Young Player of the Tournament in World Cup 2018 is also part of the lineup. He is also joined by his World Cup winning team-mates Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane.
Premier League stars Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard complete the lineup.
