Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has conceded defeat to the world's fastest man Usain Bolt, after the pair met in London on Monday.

In December 2016, Aubameyang called the world 100m record holder out for a race.

“I am waiting, man. I want to do that race, I want to see how I am, because everybody says I am fast but I don't think so. I hope to see you one day. I want to do this challenge,” the 28-year-old was quoted as saying by FIFA.com.

However, after meeting with his 'hero', the Gabon international admitted he stands no chance of dethroning the sprint legend.

“This is what’s happen in London, you can meet your hero Usain Bolt. First time in my life that I can say I’m ready to lose,” the 2015 African Footballer of the Year posted on Instagram.
