Gareth Bale is a better athlete than Cristiano Ronaldo, former Real Madrid doctor claims.
Ronaldo is considered by many to be one of the best athletes in the game but ex-Los Blancos doctor Jesus Olmo describes Bale as “possibly the best I've ever seen”.
"Possibly the best athlete I’ve seen is Gareth Bale," Olmo told Ideal . "He’s a natural athlete capable of excelling at practically any sport.
"He has unusual genetics and athletic ability, and I would say technical ability as well.
“He’s the one who impressed me most in all aspects, although there is then performance, which comes about from different circumstances.”
Olmo also claimed Real fans have not seen the best of Bale during his time at the club because he has been forced to play through injury problems in the past.
Despite huge criticisms from Spanish fans, the Welshman has helped Real win four Champions League titles since his arrival from Tottenham to the Bernabeu in 2013.
The Wales international has also had a series of clashes with current boss Zinedine Zidane and was also sold to another club last summer.
