Former Real Madrid doctor reveals Gareth Bale is best athlete he’s ever seen… even ahead of iconic Cristiano Ronaldo – The Sun | The Sun

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

Ronaldo, who moved to Saudi Arabia after his release by Manchester United, is famed for his physique and even maintains it at the age of 38 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.

Bale, 33, hung up his boots in January following a disappointing World Cup with Wales.

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 last 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.”
