PES 2018: Usain Bolt isn’t actually the quickest player on PES

What is going on, Konami?

Usain Bolt may be the quickest person in a Borussia Dortmund kit – but on PES it’s a different story.

The former Olympic sprinter, 31, was filmed enjoying a training session with the team – where he showed flashes of that famed pace.

He struggled with the ball at his feet a few times, though and looked exhausted at the end of the gruelling session.

But despite being the fastest man in the world – and having a 99 rating for speed, it turns out there’s a player on PES who’s faster than him – at least with the ball at their feet.

YouTuber ZanOMG pulled together a group of the game’s quickest players – including Bolt – to test their pace while dribbling.

And in the heats, Bolt came second – with Manchester City’s Leroy Sane coming first.

But it’s not all bad news for Bolt, though – as Sane went on to be crowned the game’s fastest player – beating the likes of Jamie Vardy, Ahmed Musa and Sadio Mane.

So, there you have it – Bolt may have the best speed rating, but when it comes down to dribbling, Sane has the edge.

Let’s hope, Dortmund scouts aren’t reading this.
