Ronaldo at 32 km / h, a real performance?

Facing West Ham this Sunday, in the Manchester United jersey, Cristiano Ronaldo was flashed at 32.51 km / h. Impressive, certainly, but in what proportions?

The British press made a big splash on Tuesday, revealing CR7’s burst of speed this weekend during the Premier League game between the Hammers and the Red Devils (1-2): 32.51 km / h. The stat is bluffing it is true, especially as no one has run faster that day on the lawn of the Olympic Stadium. Not even the very hard-hitting Aaron Wan-Bissaka (32.41 km / h all the same) or the London arrow Jarrod Bowen (31.29 km / h).

However, the performance is worth especially in light of its great age: 36 springs already on the clock. Cristiano Ronaldo in his career – and at an age already well advanced, of course – did much better, peaking at 38.6 km / h three years ago during the 2018 World Cup, in the context of a spectacular Portugal-Spain ( 3-3). A reference to date in an official football match.

A benchmark soon to be outdated

The young generation threatens, embodied by the phenomena Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland, which have already stopped the image at 37.6 km / h (during the France-Germany last Euro this summer) and 37.5 km / h (during the eighth of C1 between Dortmund and PSG in February 2020) respectively . Only the Welshman Gareth Bale and the Dutchman Arjen Robben have officially reached – or even exceeded – this milestone of 37 km / h elsewhere.
