Usain Bolt says he would be willing to help Gareth Bale improve his speed like he did with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 24-year-old finally sealed his dream move to Real Madrid earlier in the summer after scoring 21 Premier League goals for Tottenham Hotspur last season.

And the reigning 100m and 200m world and Olympic champion is keen to help the Welshman improve his speed.

“I think Gareth is probably the fastest player in the world at the moment – but I will help him with his sprinting if he wants,” Bolt is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

“It is not just about how fast you can accelerate – but also when you have the football at your feet about balance while you are sprinting as well. I helped Ronaldo with his sprinting in a training session – and look what he has go on to achieve since then.

“I have a lot of respect for Real Madrid – and if they and Gareth want my help I am happy to fly in and take a private training session with Gareth. I hear that he has been clocking speeds close to me – but it is about technique as well.

“I know I could make him an even better player than he already is.”
