Usain Bolt was questioned about whether, as of today, he could beat Kylian Mbappé in a 100m race and he replied that he could beat him. "Right now? Yes, I could take him," assured the former Jamaican runner who won 8 gold medals in Olympic Games. However, he assured that in terms of soccer, Mbappé does beat him.

Bolt did play soccer professionally in Australia, although he did not do very well and ended up hanging up his boots. For this reason, he recognized Mbappé and assured that the Frenchman would undoubtedly beat him in soccer, but in terms of speed he was emphatic in pointing out that he would beat the PSG star. In that sense, it is worth remembering that in the past, a speed comparison had already been made between the two, taking into account Bolt's record of 100 meters in 9.58 seconds, as well as Mbappé's estimated top speed, which was 10.9 seconds over the same distance.

According to the BBC sports account, "Kylian Mbappé has recorded an estimated top speed of 10.9 seconds in the 100 meters. That's only just over a second slower than Usain Bolt's world record." Faced with this tweet published in March this year, Bolt would have responded to this comparison in a message to the media account 433, in which he said "I started laughing as soon as I saw it. Girls run faster.

Now that Bolt was asked in a direct way, he seems to have settled the doubts although he did it quite humorously, as several users have pointed out that currently the Jamaican looks out of shape, while Kylian Mbappé is in a great moment. Moreover, Usain Bolt's physical state even provoked comments such as: "I think that, right now, I could even beat him in 100 meters".
