Athletics legend, Usain Bolt has opened up on the age old debate on who is a better player between Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona icon, Lionel Messi - revealing that one's experience over other leagues holds him in better stead than the other.

Bolt, who is an eight-time Olympic gold medal winner is known to be a big fan of the sport and even attempted to forge a career in the game, though he failed to establish himself as a professional in football.

The Jamaican has revealed in the past that he follows Manchester United and has admitted that Ronaldo's stints in three different countries mean he wins out against his old rival.

“For me it is a difficult question because I am a fan of Argentina, but I am also a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United. I think Cristiano has something else that Messi doesn't have because he showed his value in Italy, Spain and also in the Premier League. In that case, my answer is Cristiano Ronaldo," he told Gazzetta dello Sport via Mirror.

The 34-year-old who retired in 2017 and during his career was the fastest man on the planet, in 2020 admitted that Ronaldo would be able to beat him in a race over 100m, considering that he is a "super athlete" and "works out everyday".

"For sure Cristiano [is faster than me]. For me he works out every day, he is a super athlete. He always on top of his game, he works hard and he is focused. Right now I definitely think he would be faster than me."
