There’s a reason why Hector Bellerin is the fastest Premier League player on FIFA 17.

The Arsenal right-back is absolutely rapid; so rapid, in fact, that he’s challenged the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, to a sprint challenge.

"It's not me you have to ask, I've been waiting for that phone call from Jamaica,” Bellerin was quoted as saying by Sky Sports earlier this month when asked if he would race the Olympic champion. "I challenged him a while ago and he said maybe after Rio. So I'm just waiting now, need to push him."

However, if he watched Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday, Bolt could be forgiven if he refuses the challenge.

Bellerin showed off his incredible pace with a magnificent tackle on his compatriot, Pedro, during the closing stages of the match at the Emirates Stadium.

Just look at him go...

Pedro had a decent headstart on Bellerin - and he’s certainly no slouch himself - but he was made to look like a 40-year-old by the Arsenal defender.

Bellerin made up ground on Pedro within seconds and then timed his tackle to perfection.

Twitter reacts in style

No wonder Barcelona’s head coach Luis Enrique is keen to sign the 21-year-old.
