» Bolt: "I have no doubts that Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Messi"

There are very few names in the sport who deserve the "living legend" label. The Jamaican and 6-time Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt, is surely one of them and even though he's not a football player, he follows the sport very closely and with great attention. In a short statement to RTP, just after winning the 200m gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics, Bolt claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly better than Lionel Messi.

The fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt, who has just wrapped his 3rd gold medal in the London Olympics 2012 and the 6th of his short career, surprised half World when talking to RTP after the 200m event earlier this week, by stating that he has no doubts that Cristiano Ronaldo is a better player than Barcelona's Lionel Messi. The Jamaican holds the world-record for both the 100m (9.58 seconds) and 200m (19.19 seconds), but assured that there's more to him than just running fast, as he revealed last week that he would gladly take an opportunity for doing trials at Manchester United, if Sir Alex Ferguson was fond of that idea.

Usain Bolt is a one-of-a-kind athlete in what he does and just like Ronaldo, he's marking an era on his sport. The Jamaican's height is 1.95m (6ft 5in), while his weight is believed to be around 94kg (210lb). The 25-years old sprinter has started to make a name out of himself four years ago, in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, when back then, Bolt collected three medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m sprinting events, a stunt that he managed to repeat this Summer, in the 2012 London Olympics.

After winning the 200m final a few days ago, Bolt granted a few short statements to several networks, but one of those will certainly boost Cristiano Ronaldo's confidence for the upcoming season. When talking to the public Portuguese network station, RTP, Usain Bolt was keen to leave a few words of praise towards Cristiano Ronaldo and drew a comparison between the Real Madrid superstar and Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Usain Bolt asking for silence and for the crowd to be quiet

Usain Bolt: "Cristiano Ronaldo is a great person and is always fun. He's a great football player, but there's not even a question about that", started by noting the 25-years old Jamaican, just before the journalist fired another question, directly asking if Ronaldo was better than Lionel Messi. Bolt didn't hesitate and had no problems in picking the Portuguese player as a better footballer.

Journalist: "Is Cristiano Ronaldo better than Messi?"

Bolt: "Yes, definitely. I respect him, he's a great all-round footballer. Make sure you tell him that!", replied the fastest man in the World. The debate on who is the best player on earth will certainly continue, as the FIFA Balon d'Or award ceremony is only scheduled for next January. However, watching football from the TV doesn't seem to be enough for the Jamaican athlete and he has recently said that he would love to take an opportunity to try out playing football in a top club, such as Manchester United.

Usain Bolt: "People think I'm joking, but if I received a call from Sir Alex Ferguson, asking me to join the team and make some trials with them, it would be impossible for me to say no!", said the Jamaican in an interview to the British newspaper "The Sun", a few days ago. He then kept on, justifying his desire...

Bolt: "I wouldn't take such a challenge if I didn't think I was good enough to make an impression. I know I can make the difference and I would be the fastest player on the squad", noted the man who was born in August 21, 1986. Who surely seems pleased with this prospect, is the English international, Rio Ferdinand, who didn't take too long to comment in Twitter that he was going to put a word for him to Manchester United's boss, Sir Alex Ferguson.

After these statements, some journalists decided to keep teasing Bolt on this matter just a couple days after and the Jamaican's determination and belief didn't seem to have shrunk. Bolt: "I'm not similar to Van Persie... Having in mind how fast I am, I'm more of a winger like Ashley Young, Nani or Valencia", commented the Jamaican sprinter. No doubts that Bolt has enough speed to run down the wings, but does he have the technique, the skills and all the rest that it takes to succeed in football? You be the judge...
