The Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has challenged the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt to a race according to The Sun.
Per-the-source, the 21-year-old who broke Theo Walcott’s 40 metres sprint record at Arsenal in 2015, has now set his sights on the fastest man in the world.
“It’s not me you have to ask, I’ve been waiting for that phone call from Jamaica,” Bellerin was quoted as saying by the Sun.
“I challenged him a while ago and he said maybe after Rio. So I’m just waiting now, need to push him.”
Bolt was the star of the show at the 2016 Rio Olympics, winning golds in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m.
Bellerin went onto say that both Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are continually challanging to a race, but it is yet to take place.
“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain always says he wants to race me, and Theo, but it never really happens.”
Bellerin played the full 90 minutes during Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with PSG in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. The Spain international is expected to start for Arsenal when they take on the newly promoted Hull City in the Premier League this weekend.
