Arnold Schwarzenegger has praised Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo - for having "great abs".

Schwarzenegger, who is a former Mr Universe, admitted he was a big fan of the winger while on a promotional trip to Spain's capital.

However, Schwarzenegger does not believe Ronaldo will be swapping his football boots for baby oil anytime soon.

"He has a fantastic physique and great abs. He's in amazing shape," Schwarzenegger said. "That's why he's such a great footballer.

"I don't think he's interested in competing in Mr Olympia. Ronaldo wants to be the best player in the world and what I wanted was to win the Mr Olympia title. They're two very different sports."
