Chuba Akpom is rapid!
Arsenal prodigy Chuba Akpom took to Twitter today to boast of his unbelievable pace, having broken Theo Walcott’s ten metre sprint record.
The 18-year-old ran the short distance in a jaw-dropping 1.56 seconds today, and proudly alerted his followers of the news.

Akpom made his Arsenal debut last season, and spent short loan spells at Bradford and then Coventry City, although he failed to score a goal with either.
He’s extremely highly rated though, and has scored goals for various England youth sides.
