Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus wasn’t a huge surprise to his numerous fans after a trophy-laden adventure with Manchester United and Real Madrid, yet, some jaw-breaking findings from his medical at the Italian club perfectly highlight the truth about “blessings and curses.”
Regarded as one of the best footballers of all time, Ronaldo has won 5 Ballon d’Or awards and is expecting even more trophies despite his age – because winning is in his blood.
At the age of 33, Ronaldo’s medical at Juventus revealed he has the body of a 20-year-old. Unbelievable. Medically incorrect. Probably. His results showed 7% body fat and 50% muscle mass, with the average for footballers being 10% and 46% respectively.
Ronaldo’s individual awards are, by evidence of these findings, not just a product of hard work. The Portugal international footballer is simply created to be “The Best.”
Ironically, CR7 previously joked about having the biological body of a 23-year-old. How wrong he was. Positively wrong and now motivated for age-defying achievements with Juventus.

Ronaldo will be 37 in 2022, when the next World Cup kicks off in Qatar, and Bernado Silva says he is optimistic that the football icon would be fit to compete with younger players.
“I know the way he works,” Silva told ESPN. “I know he will still be fit to play [at Qatar 2022].”
Ronaldo may be a favorite for the 2018 FIFA Best Footballer Award but he has eye set on winning the UEFA Champions League with Juventus. An ambition that is characteristic of a dream-catcher.
“I know that the Champions League is a trophy that every club would like to win & Juventus is no different,” the former Real Madrid star tweeted. “I hope that I can be the lucky star for the club.”
