A recent article in the Metro claimed that Bellerin can run faster than Usain Bolt over 40 metres, and the athlete has hit out at this. He has challenged both the Spaniard and his teammate to a race, with the winner taking home £30,000 from the loser. Walcott was not involved in the report which claimed 100m and 200m world record holder Usain Bolt was slower than the Gunners’ right-back, but is well known for his pace.

With athletics stars earning far less than footballers, this is a big claim from the sprinter. However, it is unlikely that either footballer will take up the offer, knowing that a professional runner is likely to be quicker than them.

Do you think either of the Arsenal aces could have a chance against the sprint champion?
