As first reported by ​The Sun, ​last month Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo revealed via Instagram how, or in this case, who keeps him on top of his game as he continues to be branded the 'best in the world'.

The Portuguese star is the envy of many with his all round 'God-like' physique and it has been revealed that his current personal trainer is none other than the equally impressive former British Olympian and mother of four, Samantha Clayton

37 year-old Clayton was a sprinter who represented Great Britain at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and now works as a trainer for the sprinters at Pepperdine University as well as being a fitness expert for Amercian company Herbalife.

It was through Herbalife that Ronaldo and Clayton met and since then Clayton has been responsible for keeping the Madrid star at his sharpest working in his speed, power and agility.

Three things that keep him head and shoulders above the rest.


Clayton has her own fitness programme entitled 'Be Fit in 90' and can currently boast over 68,000 followers on Instagram. 

She uses social media to keep her followers updated as well as giving inspirational advice to help you reach your goals.

However with this association with one of the best sportsman in the world, surely her number of followers will swell over the coming weeks.
