Arjen Robben recorded the fastest speed ever recorded for a footballer player with his lightening run past Sergio Ramos for Holland's fifth goal in their hammering of Spain Friday night according to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. They clocked Robben going at an eye watering 37 kph making Ramos' 30kph look positively pedestrian in comparison.
There is some argument as to who the fastest footballer in the world was up until Robben on Friday night with FIFA saying it was Theo Walcott at 35.7 kph and this saying it was Antonio Valencia. Either way no one can catch Arjen it seems.
