Watch Cristiano Ronaldo get destroyed at his own core crusher challenge as Caster Semenya performs 34 more reps than him

CRISTIANO RONALDO wouldn't have been expecting to have his ab crunch record demolished so quickly when setting up the Living Room Cup - but Caster Semenya has done just that.

The two-time Olympic gold medal winner cruised to a stunning 176 crunches in 45 seconds, some way ahead of Ronaldo's 142.

Athletes are challenging the Juventus ace as part of Nike's Living Room Cup to encourage fitness and activity during the coronavirus lockdown.

Also taking part has been Bruno Fernandes, the Manchester United playmaker coming up short of his international colleague's tally with 117 reps.

Ronaldo's Juve colleague Blaise Matuidi shrugged off his coronavirus diagnosis to post a strong total of 144.

That makes Semenya's efforts all the more impressive with the 800m queen casually accepting this latest crown after crunching a mega 3.9 times every SECOND.

She wrote on Instagram: "Hola fellas thanks to Cristiano for his challenge, the beast himself did his best, I also manage to scoop 176 in that space of 45 seconds.

"Not bad for a Sunday."

Semenya, a hyperandrogenic who is controversially banned from defending her 800m title in the upcoming Olympics, is now training for the 200m Tokyo event now taking place in 2021.

But last September the 29-year-old made her first move to challenging the likes of Ronaldo when signing for a football team in her native South Africa.

JVW of the SAFA Women's League snapped up the sprint icon to inject some pace into their side.
