Mbappe has been ranked as the fastest footballer in the world according to data from French newspaper Le Figaro.

Clocking in at an impressive top speed of 36km/h, the French forward has come out ahead of well-known speedsters such as and Leroy Sane.

Inaki Williams is perhaps a surprise entrant at No 2 on the list, with the Athletic Bilbao man recording a 35.7km/h speed, coming very close to Mbappe but just losing out. 

Manchester United were looking to splash £81million on the forward last summer, however he later signed a new contract with the Spanish club instead.

8. Kingsley Coman – 35km/h

Overall, it would be a very closely run race between the top players, with eight of them registering speeds of over 35km/h. 

Arsenal ace Aubameyang is right behind Inaki at 35.5km/h. Real Madrid have ramped up their chase of the striker, with boss Zinedine Zidane labelling him as a ‘great priority’ after he reportedly asked to leave the London club.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Karim Bellarabi is next on the list at 35.27km/h, just pipping Manchester City’s Kyle Walker at 35.21km/h.
