Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most famous and valuable athletes in the world. The legend has many records to his name. The ex-Real Madrid football star is known for his fitness.
He has only 7% body fat and 50% muscle mass, which is one of the best for any footballer in the world. His 7% body fat is better than average of 10-15% of the majority of professional footballers. The 50% muscle mass is better than 40-45% muscle mass of other players in his age group.
After joining Juventus, Ronaldo took only eight minutes to score his first goal for the club in a traditional pre-season friendly against the team's "B'' side on Sunday.
Ronaldo finished with his usual confidence and poise after latching onto a looping pass over the midfield from attacking midfielder Federico Bernardeschi. Ronaldo took one touch to cushion the ball and then casually thumped it into the left corner. Ten minutes later, he pressured Riccardo Capellini into an own-goal to make it 2-0 to the Bianconero, the name given to Juventus because of its famed white-and-black jersey.
Hundreds of fans gathered to watch the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo at Villar Perosa — in a rural area of Piedmont in northern Italy.
He moved from Manchester United to Madrid in 2009 and became the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches. He helped Madrid win four Champions Leagues titles — beating Juventus in the final in 2017 — and also won La Liga and the Copa del Rey twice.
He joined Juventus for an Italian league record sum of 112 million euros (now $128 million) in 2018. The 33-year-old Portugal international will likely make his proper debut in Juve's first league match of the season at Chievo Verona next Saturday.
