Ronaldo show his speed by running 96 metres in 10 seconds


Usain Bolt eat your heart out. The fastest man in the world might have six Olympic gold medals after defending his titles in London this year, but we bet he can’t do this in a pair of boots.

This video shows Cristiano Ronaldo covering 96 metres of the pitch in only 10 seconds against Atletico Madrid on Saturday. Count them. We knew he was fast, but we never knew he was that fast.

Although he is some way off Bolt’s world record, it is worth remembering he has a standing start with no sprint block that athletes use, he is running on grass and in boots, he is concentrating on the movement of the ball (and slows down to prepare to shoot), and he has already run about 7km during the game.
