Bale Physically Superior To Ronaldo?

Former Real Madrid doctor Jesus Olmo has explained why he believes Gareth Bale is the best athlete he has seen, better than even the club's record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite winning four UEFA Champions League titles with Los Blancos, and scoring 105 goals in 249 appearances across all competitions since his then-world-record transfer from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, Bale has endured a turbulent past few years, with injuries hampering a large part of his time at the Spanish capital.

However, Olmo, who worked with both Ronaldo and Bale during his time with the Madrid giants, believes the Welshman is physically superior to the 35-year-old superstar.

"Possibly the best athlete I've seen is Gareth Bale," he told Spanish publication Ideal.

"He's a natural athlete capable of excelling at practically any sport. He has unusual genetics and athletic ability, and I would say technical ability as well.

"He's the one who impressed me most in all aspects, although there is then performance, which comes about from different circumstances.

"Nothing detracts from a high-level athlete's performance more than chronic pain. Solving a small tendon problem is the best thing you can do for a footballer.

"A good medical team ensures that you have the minimum possible chronic problems, but the only way to overcoming them is by working hard and very well in a targeted way. That requires effort and depends a lot on the player."
