Gareth Bale is a 29-year-old winger for Real Madrid.
He's also, depending on who you ask, the speediest soccer player in the world.
In 2014, Usain Bolt called Bale "the fastest (soccer player) in the world at the moment."
In 2017, a Mexican study outlined by the publication AS noted that Bale had achieved a higher max speed over the past year than any other high-level player.
His top speed?
A supersonic 22.9 miles per hour.
When the FIFA 18 video game released last year, Bale's 94 pace rating was among the best in the game.
