Studying their opponent, getting a good night's sleep, stretching before the big day - they're all staples of the pre-match routine. In today's day and age, athletes have more ways than ever to try and gain an edge.

But for some, there is simply no substitute for the results from some quality time in the bedroom. The following professionals have all said that it is having sex that truly makes them perform better.

8. Pep Guardiola

Manchester City boss Guardiola was accused of banning his players from having sex ahead of a game shortly after arriving in the Premier League in 2016, a claim which he soon shut down.

"It is impossible to play good football if you don't make sex with your partner," he said. "It's impossible, I never did that. They have to do it. As much as they do it, better players."

7. David Coulthard

Formula One drivers put their bodies through the mill with the insane g-forces they experiences when zooming around they track, so you would think they'd want to stay rested ahead of a race.

That wasn't the case for F1 legend Coulthard, though, who suggested some pre-race nookie made him faster behind the wheel. "Sure, why not? Sex makes you fast," he told the Irish Examiner in 2002.

6. Ronda Rousey

UFC icon Rousey argued that sex before competing wasn't just about getting a boost, but also had major scientific benefits for her and her fellow fighters when she was the queen of Dana White's promotion.

Speaking to Jim Rome on Showtime in 2012, she said: "I mean for girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before a fight, actually."

Rousey then quickly cleared up: "Not with like everybody. I don't put out Craigslist ads or anything, but you know, if I got a steady, I'm going to be like, 'Yo. Fight time's coming up'."

5. Jon Daly

Not many sports stars will have had as much sex as golfer Daly, who has been quite the playboy during his career. A total of four wives is testament to that.

He told USA Today in 2016 that sex helps his game and shared his rather strong feelings on the matter. "I am a nympho, but I’m a loyal nympho," he began. "You stay loyal to me, I’ll stay loyal to you.

"Sex is the greatest thing in the world. It just doesn’t last long enough. I’ll say it. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.”

4. Ronaldo

More footballers might want to try an X-rated pre-game workout because one of the game's greats, R9, was a strong believer in the ritual.

"Nobody can prove that sex affects performance on the field," he told Sport . "Masturbation is more tiring."

3. Ronaldinho

And Ronaldo's views were shared by his Brazil team-mate Ronaldinho, although that's as far as the sharing went.

The football legend told Playboy in 2013: "During my time at Barcelona, I often practised sex before games. It was not a problem but a benefit, as it made me happier before I played on the field."

2. Lee Byrne

Former Wales international rugby star Byrne was one of the most vehement supporters of sex before games. He believed it made him a totally different quality of player.

"I certainly believe in having sex before games," he told a late-night TV sex show. "Every time I've done it I've had Man of the Match."

As tennis' resident bad boy, it's no surprise to see Kyrgios gets down and dirty ahead of a tournament. "With my first girlfriend, I was away from her for six months at a time,” he said on his No Boundaries podcast last November.

“When you’re trying to perform at the highest level, you start missing someone like emotionally, physically and it becomes a sexual frustration. I’m on court and I can’t play because I’m a bit horny, if you know what I mean.

"It doesn’t matter if you’re in an office job. If you’re not seeing your significant other, it affects you, your work, your mood, everything."
