CR7 Medical Shows He’s Got The Physical Capabilities Of A 20-Year-Old

What do R&B singer R. Kelly, plastic surgery-obsessed Los Angelenos and Cristiano Ronaldo have in common? For them, age is nothing but number. Certainly, the 33-year-old has shown he can more than hang with the the best of young bucks as he finished as Champions League top scorer this past season and helped to bring home the third trophy in a row for Real Madrid.

Sometimes, one cannot help but roll his or her eyes a little at the striker when he explains how much he still feels “like a young boy." When he signed for Juventus a few weeks back, the proud Portuguese discussed how he is different than all the other players his age who “usually go to Qatar or China.”

It seems that, after undergoing his physical evaluation with the Italian giants, we’ve got some hard data to further back up CR7 claims. The Juve medical team came back with three eyebrow-raising stats in particular about its new signing.

There have been several CR7 performances that have made viewers questions whether this man is actually an alien and these numbers have us scratching our heads again. Time will tell exactly how/if these findings manifest on the field, but two things are certain: This man has a knack for proving doubters wrong and for winning championships wherever he goes.
