Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that one of the best soccer players of this generation has legs that look like tree trunks, but new photos of Cristiano Ronaldo's lower body have many fans in awe.
Some photos of a Real Madrid practice have leaked in advance of the team's Champion's League semifinal matchup with Juventus. Ronaldo's muscular legs made quite the impression on Twitter:

Ronaldo's quads are famously ripped. Thanks to all that power, Ronaldo's vertical leap is 31 inches, meaning he can head a ball when it's 8 1/2 feet high.
It makes sense that Ronaldo's legs are in superb shape, as those limbs have provided the support for his incredible career. The 30-year-old Portuguese superstar won the FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2013 and 2014 and recently became the only player in soccer history to score 50 or more goals in a season on five different occasions.
It was even reported that Real Madrid insured Ronaldo's legs for more than $140 million.
And if you thought Ronaldo's lower body was impressive, his upper body has the muscular definition to match. The superstar striker famously ripped off his jersey to reveal his insane physique after scoring a goal in last year's Champions League finale.
