Cristiano Ronaldo in New Castrol EDGE Documentary
Cristiano Ronaldo  attempts to smash a glass wall with a trademark free-kick in a new Castrol EDGE documentary which will be broadcast next month. 

The Real Madrid attacker has already shot the 60-minute feature in Madrid, where he undertook a series of challenges set by some of the world's leading sports scientists. Castrol EDGE Presents Ronaldo Tested to the Limit is to be broadcast in the UK by Sky Sports and shown around the world over the coming months.

Ronaldo is put through a series of elaborate tests to help understand what gives him the strength to perform at an elite level. His ability to strike the ball hard is examined as he tries to shatter walls of glass with a deadball strike. 

Viewers will also be able to see how the Portuguese player fares against an elite sprinter in a battle of speed and agility. The world's most expensive player is also put to the test in a further challenge as he attempts to outwit laser gun snipers. 

After completing the documentary in Madrid the player said: "Shooting the film has been really exciting as it’s the first time I’ve ever done something like this. The challenges were designed to look at my strength and skill in detail and it’s been a great experience to see how my body works."

Ronaldo added: "The challenges were really tough, but I think I did well on the day.”
The documentary will bring viewers up close and personal with Ronaldo by using ultra slow motion and high impact computer generated imagery. Arsenal manger Arsene Wenger and England boss Fabio Capello have also contributed to the 60-minute feature. 
Castrol EDGE were granted unprecedented access to their global ambassador who shot the film while preparing for the new season with Real Madrid. The documentary, which was developed by M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment and filmed by UK production house Plum Pictures, will have a red carpet premiere next month in Spain.
