The Fastest Shot In Football History Reached A Ridiculous 131 Miles Per Hour

The combination of speed and power in the strike is just insane.

Former Brazilian footballer Ronny Heberson is believed to have responsible for the fastest shot in the history of football.

Ronny, brother of former Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke forward Raffael, had an absolute sledgehammer of a left-foot on him.

He was incredibly dangerous from dead-ball situations and demonstrated that ability for Sporting CP in November 2006.

Ronny scored a rocket of a free-kick winner in the 88th minute away at Associação Naval 1º de Maio, the unstoppable effort well and truly rippling the net.

It's been unofficially measured that this stormer or a strike was hit at 210.9 kmh (131.82 mph). Just imagine being in the wall and getting the ball leathered into your private parts with such venom. Brutal.

It eclipses ferocious efforts from the likes of Roberto Carlos, Tony Yeboah and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ronny also came up with another netbuster a few years later when at Hertha Berlin, rifling a free-kick into the top bins once again.

Similarly, Ronny's compatriot Adriano hit an absolute rocket for Inter Milan against Real Madrid in 2001 that very nearly broke the net.

It was a strike that absolutely warranted his 99 shot power rating on PES, with the man himself claiming it was hit at 105 miles per hour.

"I arrived at the Bernabeu. I was wearing Inter's shirt, Real were the opponents. It was like a dream," he told Inter's official website.

"I didn't need anything more. I went onto the pitch and didn't think about anything, I played as if I were on that dusty field in Vila Cruzeiro.

"I worked, I played with skill, I did everything. I won a free-kick and the bench said I should take it.

"Do you remember the left foot that used to train on the street and at home, the one that drove my mother crazy? I introduced him to the world with that free-kick. They said it was going 105 miles per hour!"
