Will we see an even better Ronaldo at full flight?

Bolt offers tips to Ronaldo at Manchester United training - News & Comment, Football - The Independent

The world's fastest man offered running tips to football's world player of the year today as Usain Bolt dropped in on a Manchester United training session.

Bolt, the Olympic triple gold medalist and United fan, took the opportunity to advise speedy winger Cristiano Ronaldo how to adjust the running technique that torments defences but often sees him tumble to the ground too easily.

"I explained to him a few things about when he is running and reaches top speed he starts to tip over, he always does that," Bolt said. "I let him know if he brings his foot on the center of gravity, or even in front of him, it will be much easier. He will be much better and he will go faster for longer.

"Because he's so fast they keep pushing him around, he needs to be more aggressive (and) they will leave him alone. I think Ronaldinho had the same problem. They found he was very skillful and they kind of picked on him a lot. He got more aggressive and they stopped picking on him."

Yeah, just have him up at the half way line, and defenders would need to give him 5 yards because of his pace. Might provide a lot of shooting room for a midfielder. And say he does stay onside during a run, all he'd need to do is be able to finish.
