Alphonso Davies' Priceless Reaction To Being Told He Clocked 36.51km/h Against Werder Bremen

By now Alphonso Davies is well aware he's pretty fast but even he couldn't believe the ridiculous new speed record he set in the Bundesliga last night.

The 19-year old clocked a ridiculous 35.51km/h (22.69 mph) as Bayern Munich sealed an eighth consecutive title with a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen.

We've seen Davies utilise his blistering praise to devastating effect in recent weeks but when told he became the fastest player in the history of the division - breaking the previous record from 2011 with a first-half sprint - it took the Canadian by surprise.

The Vancouver Whitecaps youth product was lost for words and could only tell the interviewer that he just does his job and "I'm happy I can break a record".

Davies, who has been converted to a left-back this term, was actually sent off late on for two bookable offences in the title triumph but clearly it didn't affect his mood whatsoever.

He's been an utter revelation since making the switch from the MLS and was a key part of yet another title for Bayern.

His teammate Thomas Muller has even started calling him "the FC Bayern roadrunner" after seeing him display some serious recovery pace.

"He's a player with a lot of heart and a lot of power... extreme power.

"Sometimes maybe his positioning on the field is not the best, but he gets the opponent thinking, 'Oh, I have time, I have time'.

"And then 'Meep meep meep meep' the FC Bayern roadrunner comes ahead and steals the ball."
