Usain Bolt reckons 'super athlete' Cristiano Ronaldo could beat him in a race despite being fastest man ever

FASTEST man of all time Usain Bolt thinks 'super athlete' Cristiano Ronaldo could beat him in a race right now.

Bolt broke the 100m record in the 2009 World Championships clocking a record breaking 9.58 second time.

But the Jamaican legend, 34, retired from athletics three years ago, while Ronaldo, 35, is actively leading the line for Juventus.

As a result, Bolt backed the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward to beat him in a dash at the moment.

He told told Marca Sport Weekend: "For sure Cristiano [is faster].

"For me he works out every day, he is a super athlete.

"He's always on top of his game, he works hard and he is focussed.

"Right now I definitely think he would be faster than me."

Bolt is a United fan and supported Ronaldo during the Portugal icon's Old Trafford days.

The sprinter himself had aspirations of succeeding in a footballing career.

After retirement, Bolt trained with Norwegian side Stromsgodset, and played a friendly against Norway's Under-19 team up as a forward.

Later that year, he had a trial with Australian team Central Coast Mariners and after a couple of friendlies was offered a contract.

But following eight weeks he hung up his boots and in 2019 confirmed he would not longer pursue a career in football.
