Arsenal's new Japanese signing Ryo Miyaichi will arrive boasting a reputation as being one of the fastest men in football.

The 'Young Guns' website reports Miyaichi has been clocked running 100 metres in a time of 10.84 seconds during training with Chukyo High School.

That time is only a fraction slower than Theo Walcott's best of 10.30 seconds, but much faster than Gunners legend Thierry Henry.

Miyaichi is joining Arsenal in January after recovering from a broken leg injury suffered in trials in Holland.
