FASTEST man of all time Usain Bolt thinks ‘super athlete’ Cristiano Ronaldo could beat him in a race right now.
Bolt broke the 100m record in the 2009 World Championships clocking a world record 9.58 second time.
But the Jamaican legend, 34, retired from athletics three years ago, while Ronaldo, 35, is actively leading the line for Juventus.
As a result, Bolt backed the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward to beat him in a dash at the moment.
He told told Marca Sport Weekend: “For sure Cristiano [is faster].
“For me he works out every day, he is a super athlete.
“He’s always on top of his game, he works hard and he is focussed.
“Right now I definitely think he would be faster than me.”
Bolt is a United fan and supported Ronaldo during the Portugal icon’s Old Trafford days.
The sprinter himself had aspirations of succeeding in a footballing career.

After retirement, Bolt trained with Norwegian side Stromsgodset, and played a friendly against Norway’s Under-19 team up as a forward.
Later that year, he had a trial with Australian team Central Coast Mariners and after a couple of friendlies was offered a contract.
But following eight weeks he hung up his boots and in 2019 confirmed he would not longer pursue a career in football.
