Football News

Throughout the course of the season, James Rodriguez has been criticised for his lifestyle and has had to endure numerous insults, including being labelled as fat. Rodriguez hit back, admitting the jibes were really getting to him. 

However, the notion that Rodriguez is overweight has now been firmly put to bed. Indeed, in January, Real Madrid tested the body fat levels of their stars.

And the results were surprising. It's quite clear that Rodriguez has already proved his doubters wrong.

Marca, who claim that they've had exclusive access to the statistics from the Spanish giants, have revealed that the Colombian midfielder actually has the fifth lowest body fat levels of the entire Real Madrid squad. 

Now, that either proves that the majority of the Los Blancos squad are overweight or it confirms that Rodriguez is in fine shape. We're going to go with the latter on this occasion. 

In fine shape 

The midfielder currently has a body fat percentage of 9.47% - the leanest Real Madrid player recorded a percentage of 9.14% - so it appears that he is doing just fine right now. 

In fact, the same report claims that a footballer is considered to be in good shape when recording a body fat percentage between 9% and 10%.

So, that is that, Rodriguez is in fine condition and will surely start proving his credentials under Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu in the immediate future.

Who do you think is the leanest Real Madrid player? Have your say below!
