Invited by Tony Parker on Youtube, the 1998 Ballon d'Or winner listed his favourite sportsmen, four world legends of their sport.

Many athletes admire Zidane, but Zidane also has his idols. During a discussion with Tony Parker on the "Skweek show" program on Youtube, "ZZ" revealed the names of four sportsmen he admires. The 1998 world champion first talked about his passion for boxing. "I would get up at night to watch Mike Tyson's fights. I always have a special thing with him. Sometimes you'd get up at three or four in the morning and it would last a minute, but it didn't matter (laughs)," said the former Real Madrid coach, a fan of another great boxer. "He's not with us anymore but it was Muhammad Ali."

Forgotten about the ring, Zidane then turned to basketball and legend Michael Jordan, the man with six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls. "He's the ultimate sportsman. He's one of the best sportsmen of all time," said the 1998 Ballon d'Or winner. Before bowing down to a fourth great champion in his discipline: "After that, there was someone I liked a lot, in Formula 1, it was Ayrton Senna. Those were my time. He left too soon, but he was a phenomenon."
