Five time Balon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo says his biological age is 25 even though he is actually 35.
The Juventus forward clocked 35 on Wednesday, 5 February 2020.
His career has been one marked by hardwork and commitment. On his birthday, he was spotted training.
The four time FIFA player of the year has lifted five UEFA Champions League trophies with Manchester United and Real Madrid.
He also holds the record for the highest number of goals in the UCL with 122 so far.
The Portuguese star is his country’s highest goal scorer of all-time and has won two European trophies with the side – a feat his fans feel makes him a superior player to rival Lionel Messi who is yet to win anything with the Argentine national team.
“I’m 35, but you know my biological age is 25,” he said.
“As a child, I thought that at 35, I would be a fisherman in Madeira. I never dreamed of playing what I played, winning what I won.” he added.
Ronaldo has played in three of Europe’s top leagues; English Premier League, Spanish La Liga and now the Italian Serie A.
