Jamaican sprinter and world’s fastest man Usain Bolt has claimed that Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford could beat him in a 20-yard sprint race.
Bolt will be in action during Soccer Aid on Sunday as England take on World XI at Old Trafford.
Bolt, a staunch fan of Manchester United, was also a regular at their Carrington training complex during the peak of his powers.
He had also spent time at the club on trial as a forward and was given a shirt with his record 100m time of ‘9.63’ seconds on the back.
The sprinter, though, believes the club have one player who could give him a run for his money and that person is Rashford.
Below is the transcript of the conversation between Darren Bent and Usain Bolt on talkSPORT, Bent, “I read an article where you said that Rashford could beat you over 20 yards, is that correct?”
Bolt, “Yeah! Rashford is quick out the blocks, that is what he does. He has that burst of speed but after that, I told him, you could probably get me beaten in 20 yards. But after that, it is over.”
