Manchester City star Leroy Sane is the fastest Premier League player since records began!
The winger, signed from Schalke 04 in 2016 in a £37 million deal, has starred for Pep Guardiola’s team this season, scoring three goals and providing two assists in seven appearances.
And Sane now has a record to his name, as he was recorded running at a speed of 35.48 kilometres per hour (22.05mph) during the club’s dominant 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The 21-year-old subsequently beats Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy’s record.
