We all know that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers to have ever played the game.
Those that believe the Portuguese is the best of all-time point to his all-round attributes, saying that he’s a better athlete that those that have gone before him.
While he may be stronger and faster than almost everyone else, he’s not quite as quick as teammate Gareth Bale. Don’t take our word for it though, just ask Cristiano Jr.

The forward’s five-year-old son has mocked his father about being slower than the Welshman - something that probably didn’t go down too well.
Ronaldo prides himself on being the best and he admits that he disagrees with his son’s opinion.

Bale is quicker
“Sometimes he comes at home and says ‘daddy, Bale is faster than you,’” he told La Sexta, per The Sun.
“And I say ‘what are you on about? No one is faster than your dad.
“And he says ‘yes but at school they told me he is faster.”
Outrageous goal tally
While Bale may be faster than Ronaldo, according to his son, the former Manchester United man is certainly more prolific.
Ronaldo has scored a quite ridiculous 364 goals in 347 appearances in all competitions since arriving at the Bernabeu in 2009.
Champions League final
On Saturday Ronaldo will be hoping to lead Madrid to their 11th Champions League triumph when they face Atletico Madrid in the San Siro. He will also be hoping to set a new record - most goals scored in a single season in Europe’s elite competition.
He has, so far, managed an incredible 16 goals - just one short of the record he set two years ago - and he admits that, although he would love to beat his previous tally, he just wants to be lifting the famous trophy again.
“It would be amazing to equal or surpass it, but records happen naturally, I’m not obsessed by them. The most important thing is to win,” he said.
Barcelona supporting son?
It’s unknown whether Cristiano Jr will be in Milan cheering on his father this weekend but one thing is for sure, Ronaldo won’t be too impressed if his son ever decides to support Barcelona.
“It’s impossible he’ll ever tell me he supports Barcelona. If he has the genes of his dad, impossible, I tell you,” he said.
“But if it happens I will accept it. Each to his own. I wouldn’t take him to the Nou Camp myself but I’d have to accept it.”
He may have won 16 trophies in his senior career as well as three Ballon d'Or awards, but he won't be impressed that his son thinks Bale is faster than him.
