Chris Rock advocates the use of steroids in sport because they give sportspeople the physique to give their best performance.

The controversial comedian insists if he was an athlete he would turn to illegal substances to bulk up his slim frame.

Rock says, "I'm pretty scrawny. If I was playing (American football), I'd definitely be on steroids.

"You know, most people in the world, if you told them they could take a pill and be better at their job, they'd take the pill."

Rock is currently starring in a re-make of 1974 movie THE LONGEST YARD with Adam Sandler, which tells the story of a gang of prison inmates who challenge their guards to a game of American football.
