Usain Bolt: "Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Messi"

After running in the Olympics, Usain Bolt has also appeared on the race for the Ballon d'Or. The Jamaican sprinter is clear about who is his favorite to win the prestigious award: "Without question, Cristiano is better than Messi. He is a more complete player", he said flatly to the RTP (Portuguese TV).

Bolt has never hidden his admiration for the player of Real Madrid, the same that, incidentally, Cristiano Ronaldo feels for the Jamaican. Even, we can say that both have a good friendship, as Bolt himself acknowledges: "Cristiano is fun and a great person".

Therefore, it is no wonder that the legendary sprinter has been campaigning for Cristiano Ronaldo. Bolt does not miss any opportunity to highlight the Portuguese player. He already did it when was chosen by L'Equipe as best athlete of the year in 2009. "I would have given it to Cristiano. He has managed to stay on top and I know that's the most difficult", he said.

But Usain Bolt not only feels admiration for Cristiano, also by Real Madrid. The Jamaican is a renowned white fan. "I have always liked Real Madrid" the Olympic champion confessed several times. In fact, the white team has had several details with one of its most famous fans. In the summer of 2009, the Real Madrid invited Usain Bolt to perform the ceremonial kick-off at the Bernabeu in a game against Deportivo. The Jamaican enjoyed it so much that after the match went down to the grass to play some minutes with Butragueño.

Since then, the paths of Bolt and Real Madrid are crossed every time there is a chance. As in Zagreb last year. The Jamaican disputed a miting in the capital of Croatia and Real Madrid played there the next day a game of the Champions League. Bolt invited all staff to see him in action, but only Florentino Perez could attend, who gave him, after the final of the race, a Cristiano Ronaldo t-shirt signed by the entire squad.
