Usain Bolt picks Ronaldo, Mbappe and Bale in his dream 4x100m relay team

The Premier League is renowned for having some of the fastest players in world football.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Leroy Sane, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marcus Rashford, Adama Traore and Daniel James all possess blisterring pace.

Even on FIFA 20's list of the 10 fastest players, the Premier League is the most prominent league with three speedsters featuring in Traore, Sane and Aubameyang.

If you were picking a 4x100m relay team from footballers, the above trio would be difficult selection to ignore.

But one man who would ignore them is the greatest sprinter to have ever graced this planet in Usain Bolt.

The Jamaican superstar was asked in a recent interview by FIFA to pick his dream 4x100m team from footballers.

Bolt was only allowed to pick three players to accompany him in the race, with no Premier League names making the cut.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Gareth Bale were the trio chosen by the great man.

Not bad, not bad, especially Mbappe, who is well-known as being arguably the fastest footballer on the planet and he possesses 96 pace on FIFA 20 - which is level at the top with Traore.

As for Ronaldo, the 34-year-old still seems as quick as ever, but surely the likes of Traore and Sane would be better options in a race?

Bolt was also asked the big question about the Ronaldo and his eternal rival, Lionel Messi.

So who would Bolt pick? When asked, the Olympic champion replied: "Both! Many people are asking this question, but they are two geniuses of football. I have always been a big fan of Ronaldo. I admire his ability to succeed in different championships: England, Spain and now Italy."

Bolt was then asked to pick players he think are capable of succeeding the great pair, to which he answered: "There are a lot of very promising young players: Mbappe, Neymar, Jadon Sancho.

"I can not wait to see what the Ajax alumni, Mattthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, are going to do in their new clubs.

"There is also Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. I'm friends with Raheem Sterling, Paul Pogba and Leon Bailey, so I hope they'll continue to play well in the future."
