The quickest footballer in Australia

Storm fans have long thought it but finally the stats have confirmed it - Josh Addo-Carr is the fastest footballer in the country.

Numbers published in the Herald Sun on Sunday revealed Addo-Carr reaches a top speed of 37.8 kilometres per hour.

That reading on the speed gun is faster than any AFL player.

As if that is not music enough to purple ears, The Foxx is setting his sights on being even quicker in 2018.

“I’d like to think so (that I can get faster), there’s always room for improvement,” Addo-Carr told the Sunday Herald Sun.

“My best attribute is speed and I always like to work hard on my speed. Hopefully I can get faster.”

Fastest of the sporting world:
63km/hr - Winx (Racing)
44.72 km/hr - Usain Bolt (Athletics)
37.8 km/hr - Josh Addo-Carr (Rugby league)
36.9 km/hr - Gareth Bale (Soccer)
