Jamaican international Usain Bolt has hailed over the years as the world’s fastest athlete because of the feats he has achieved on the track before his retirement in 2017.
Usain Bolt won a total of eight Olympic gold medals, and the world records in both the 100m and 200m disciplines during his active days but he has now come out to state that he is not the fastest in the world.
According to him, former Man United star and Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo will defeat him if they are both to set on track for a 100m race.
He stressed that the Juventus star will defeat him because he worked very hard and always at the top in his sports.
“For sure Cristiano Ronaldo,” Bolt told Marca, via the Daily Star, when asked which footballer could beat him over his preferred distance.

“He works out every day, he is a super-athlete. He is always at the top of his sport. He works very hard and is always focused. I think right now he would definitely be faster than me.” He added
However, Cristiano Ronaldo, now 35, is known to be one of the hardest-working footballers who is also a dedicated career. All of his achievements can be traced to the hard work behind the scenes.
He has won the World Best player repeatedly to prove that he should be immortalized as one of the greatest ever in the game. At 35, he is still seen as one of the fastest in the game and he is not anywhere close to his retirement.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Old Trafford when he retires but that has been dismissed by a Manchester Evening News report.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo will not be a Juventus player forever but when he leaves Turin is unworn and his destination as well.
