In a shocking revelation which has been broughi to light, Cristiano Ronaldo’s knee injury which he suffered in 2014 was not just any normal bruise, but a condition which has worsened over the years with each time the Portuguese steps on to the field to play or to train. Despite the pain, Ronaldo has played his career’s best football from 2014 onwards for Real Madrid and Juventus, winning numerous awards for club and country.

Despite the condition, Ronaldo has been in prime form till date, fit as a fiddle and still sharp on his feet. In the Euros 2020 in the group stage between Portugal and Germany, it was recorded that Ronaldo ran from one end of the field to the other in a span of 10 seconds and clocked at least 32 km/h.
