It's been one of the biggest unanswered questions since Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid - is the Welshman really faster than Cristiano Ronaldo?
Bale demonstrated his devastating pace against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final last year to bag the winning goal - however few would bet against a supreme athlete like Ronaldo.
However during Real Madrid's win against Almeria on Friday - their 20th win in a row which is a new record - it seems we may have gone some way to finding an answer. The former Tottenham man burst forward on the counter-attack during the 4-1 win, leaving a host of defenders trailing in his wake.
Sadly Ronaldo was also struggling to keep up, and the Portuguese ace couldn't make it into the box in time to make it on to his team-mate's cross. Now of course some will say that Ronaldo wasn't giving it his all - but the Real Madrid superstar isn't one to turn down a chance to bag himself a goal, is he?
The former Manchester United man of course struggled badly with knee injuries over the summer and made little impact at the World Cup - although he's shown no sign of any trouble this season and has an incredible 25 goals in just 14 league games so far this term.
