A Player Reached A Higher Max Speed Than Usain Bolt During Soccer Aid

Despite being the fastest man on the planet, an England player reached a higher max speed than Usain Bolt.

The Jamaican sprint legend captained the World XI against an England XI in Soccer Aid 2018 at Old Trafford.

The likes of Darren Bent, Olly Murs, Danny Murphy, Jez Lynch, among others, represented Team England.

Not to mention Mo Farah. And the GB Olympic hero actually out-sprinted Bolt in the first-half.

Bolt was clocked at 31.6 kph, while the decorated long distance runner hit 32 kph.


The pair of runners got plenty of people talking. Here's some reaction from Twitter:

Great entertainment between Bolt and Farah.
