Cristiano Ronaldo is 33 but has 20-year-old body: Juventus medical results defy logic


Cristiano Ronaldo is like old wine - he is getting better with age. However, this analogy may not be totally exact as it seems Cristiano Ronaldo is getting younger by the day. 

The 33-year-old has previously claimed to have the biological age of a 23-year-old. However, he is wrong. The results of his medical with Juventus reportedly show that he is even fitter than that.

According to reports, tests have revealed that the Portuguese star has the body of a 20-year-old.

The news of his latest feat at Juventus has left the football world in his awe again. 

The medical results say that the ex-Real Madrid striker has seven per cent body fat, which is around three per cent less than the average professional footballer. He also has a muscle mass of 50 percent – four percent more than an average footballer.

Even more impressive is the fact the 33-year-old reached a maximum speed of 33.98 km/h at the World Cup, which was the highest figure recorded at the tournament – an incredible feat for a player of his age.

The medical results may not come as much of a surprise to the player himself, who, during his unveiling at Juventus on 16 July, said: "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 has insisted he’s fit enough to carry on playing at the top level for at least four more years and the incredible figures from his medical show that may well be the case.

Ronaldo scored 451 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid, Ronaldo will be hoping to replicate the success for Serie A champions.
