The Real Madrid star had been a doubt for the pivotal clash after suffering a calf injury in the Club World Cup, but he is 100% ready, his coach says

Cristiano Ronaldo has been declared fit to play in Real Madrid's clash with Barcelona on Saturday after overcoming a calf problem.

Ronaldo sustained the injury during the Club World Cup final victory over Gremio and had trained alone as a "precaution", with the club insisting the 2017 Ballon d'Or winner would be fit for Barca's visit.

He was then pictured training alongside the rest of his team-mates as normal on Friday and coach Zinedine Zidane confirmed in his pre-match news conference that Ronaldo is fine and will feature.

Zidane said: "He is fine, he's 100 per cent. He has trained today and that's what interests me. I'm not going to get sidetracked into other things.

"The only important thing is the game and that’s all Cristiano has to think about on Saturday. What Cristiano has done and doing at this club, he deserves all the respect he gets."
