Sprint king Bolt gives Ronaldo tips on how to stay on his feet

Posted By: Staff

London, July 8 (ANI): Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo has been given tips on how to stay on his feet by sprint king Usain Bolt.

The fastest man in the world struck up a friendship with Ronaldo after meeting the former Manchester United star at the club's training ground in May.

According to The Sun, Bolt, a Red Devils fan, has been giving running advice to the world's most expensive footballer.

Bolt said: "I explained that when he catches top speed he starts tipping over because he has a lot of back lift. So I said he has to run with his knees in front of him, then when he hits top speed he won't topple over as he'll continue at the same pace."

Bolt admits he was disappointed to see Ronaldo quit Old Trafford for La Liga.

But he insists Michael Owen can spearhead the club's pursuit of a record-breaking 19th league title next season. (ANI)
