Retired sprinter Usain Bolt has stated that a certain Man United star could beat him in a race as he is quick out of the blocks.
Bolt is regarded as the fastest man to ever live and holds multiple records over 100 and 200-metre distances. Aside from his love of sprinting, the Jamaican is a big fan of football and has a strong connection with Manchester United.
The 36-year-old has a close bond with the United players and regularly turns up at the club’s training complex at Carrington to catch up.
Bolt is taking part in Soccer Aid on Sunday, where England will face a World XI at Old Trafford, and ahead of that game, the sprinter named the football that could beat him in a race.
