Day one of the Cristiano Ronaldo era at Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo finally got an idea of what it takes to be a Juventus player on Monday.

After meeting some of his new team-mates at the club’s Turin training base, Ronaldo, who joined from Real Madrid in a deal worth £100million, was put through a number of tough physical tests.

All of the tests were designed to test the 33-year-old’s fitness as he prepares for the new Serie A season.

The former Real Madrid star touched down in Turin on Sunday night after being afforded an extended holiday following his campaign with Portugal at the World Cup.

Some Juventus fans greeted him at the airport, filming him stepping off a private plane with his family and entourage.

He is yet to meet the rest of his team-mates who are away with manager Massimiliano Allegri on the club’s pre-season training tour of the United States.

Aldo Dolcetti, one of Massimiliano Allegri’s most trusted assistants, will oversee the players’ progression in the coming weeks which began with a full medical check-up.

It is expected that Ronaldo makes his first appearance in a Juventus shirt in the traditional pre-season match against the club academy on August 12, with all 5,000 tickets sold out for the game in Villa Perosa.
