 TOP SPEED: 36.2km/h 

It’s hard to argue with Mbappe’s place among the world’s elite having already won three Ligue 1 titles, a World Cup and several individual awards.

The scary thing about him is that he’s still just 21.

And among his brilliant talents is a blistering pace, which helps make him a defender’s worst nightmare.

The PSG forward’s top-speed of 36.2 km/h ranks him as the world’s third-fastest player at the moment. But don’t be surprised if he becomes No.1 come to the end of 2020.

Even sprint king Usain Bolt knows it and recently named Mbappe as part of his three-man sprint dream team of footballers.
