C. RONALDO IS THE 2ND WORLD’S FITTEST ATHLETE

Sports Illustrated released their Fittest 50 earlier today, a project which aims to rank the fittest athletes on planet Earth. As for the criteria, the authors write that “athletes were assessed based on strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility and skill in his or her respective sport.”

As expected, the Fittest50 is filled with freaks like LeBron James, Luka Modric and Russell Westbrook. But ahead of all those names is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, whom SI ranks as the second fittest male athlete in all of sports. “At the age of 33, Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is a physical specimen, sporting a perfectly chiseled six-pack, sinewy leg muscles and bulging biceps, plus a self-proclaimed biological age of 23 that keeps him performing at a top level on the pitch,” the authors write.

The winner of several major awards in 2018—including the FIFA World Cup Golden Ball, UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award, the Best FIFA Men’s Player and the Ballon d’Or—the Real Madrid midfielder is known to be obsessed with staying in prime physical shape.
