Arsenal star Bellerin: I'm still waiting on call from Usain Bolt!

Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has revealed that he is waiting for a response from Olympic champion Usain Bolt after challenging the Jamaican star to a sprint.

The Spanish full-back broke Theo Walcott's 40-metre club sprint record in 2015 and is supposedly the fastest player at Arsenal.

He told a fan at a Q&A organised by Puma in London: "It's not me you have to ask, I've been waiting for that phone call from Jamaica.

"I challenged him a while ago and he said maybe after Rio.

"So I'm just waiting now, need to push him."

In Brazil at the 2016 Games last month, Manchester United fan Bolt became the first man to win three Golds in both the 100m and 200m sprint events.
