"I have always been a big fan of Ronaldo. I admire his ability to succeed in different championships England, Spain and now Italy."
The star sprinter was later asked who he would be rooting for -- among Messi, Ronaldo and Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk -- in the upcoming FIFA Best Awards. "These are three wonderful players. Ronaldo and Messi won the prize five times each. For his part, Van Dijk has just won the UEFA prize and in view of his performances in Liverpool last season, his time may have come. But as a supporter of Manchester United, I would surely vote for Ronaldo!" Bolt said.
He also included Ronaldo in his dream team of footballers for teaming up in a 4x100m relay event. "Ronaldo, Mbappe and Gareth Bale," Bolt replied.
