Wrestling legend Mick Foley has explained on Triple M's Winter Breakfast that he believes AFL players are "probably the best athletes in the world".

MICK EXPLAINS WHY:

Foley is touring Australia with Mark Cometti, where the conversation naturally flipped onto the sport where Mark's father Dennis made himself famous.

"I've always maintained - you go can go back and find historical footage of me saying this - that I think these are probably the best athletes in the world," he told Triple M.

Foley reserved any suggestion he could have played AFL.

"I would have been awful at it," he said.

"I don't have any of the qualities. I couldn't jump over a medium-sized phone book!"
