Paul Pogba's Penalty Run-Up Took Longer Than Usain Bolt's World Record 100m Sprint
SPORTbible started the #ThingsYouCanDoDuringPogbasPenaltyRunUp hashtag on Sunday afternoon, which gathered plenty of traction on social media throughout the day.
From watching the entire Lord Of The Rings box-set to Spurs finally finishing their new stadium, the hashtag produced some cracking responses
Including a certain video involving 100m world-record holder Usain Bolt.
It may sound ridiculous but Bolt's famous world record 9.58 second sprint back in 2009 was genuinely faster than Paul Pogba's ridiculously slow run-up against Everton on Sunday afternoon - no, seriously.
Bolt broke his own 100m record at the World Athletics Championship in Berlin, creating sporting history in the process.
The fact that he was quicker than Pogba's run up still baffles me. He literally runs a matter of yards.
Fun fact: Usain Bolt took 9.58 seconds to beat 100M World Record at World Champs. While Paul Pogba took 9.90 seconds to complete penalty run up vs Everton:open_mouth:- Old Sport (@famochi09) October 29, 2018
Following United's 2-1 win over Everton at the weekend, Jose Mourinho urged the Frenchman to change his penalty style, and Pogba agreed with his statement.
"I always try and destabilize the keeper, maybe they know how I take penalties, maybe I should practice to change it, if the keepers know my step." he said.
While Mourinho said: "He wants to take them. Maybe he has to change his approach but I don't want him to change his mental approach. The keeper is also a good penalty saver so lets give credit to him. He showed that in the World Cup."
Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw was another to jump on the #ThingsYouCanDoDuringPogbasPenaltyRunUp bandwagon, mentioning his new contract after an impressive couple of months in the first team set-up.
