Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has challenged the Jamaican world-record holder and nine-time Olympic king to a race.


There aren't many people that would fancy their chances in a race with Usain Bolt .

The Jamaican picked up 3 gold medals on the track at last month's Olympics , but it seems he may have found himself a keen contender to his sprint crown in Arsenal's Hector Bellerin .

It's fairly well known that the Gunners right back is no slow coach ever since he broke Theo Walcott's 40m club sprint record in 2015, but he has now called out the world's fastest man.

Speaking as the face of the Puma FC Herzo collection in London about the potential of him and Bolt going head to head on the track he said: "It’s not me you have to ask, I’ve been waiting for that phonecall from Jamaica."

Bolt has been busy letting his hair down after winning the 100m, 200m and 4x100m in Rio to complete his 'triple-triple' of Olympic titles, but it seems Bellerin is eager for his turn at racing the undisputed champion.

"I challenged him a while ago and he said maybe after Rio. So I’m just waiting now, need to push him."

Bellerin would surely be no match for Bolt, but Arsenal certainly have no shortage of pace among their ranks.

"We have a quick team full of speedsters, I think it’s really important in the game now. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain always says he wants to race me and Theo (Walcott) but it never really happens."
