Everton star Yannick Bolasie: I've beaten Usain Bolt in foot race

Everton star Yannick Bolasie claims he's beaten sprint champ Usain Bolt in a foot race.

Everton's £25million summer signing from Crystal Palace said he had the world's fastest man and nine-time Olympic Gold medalist when he played him at five-a-side.

Bolasie said: I've played football with him.

"We played a game at pitch somewhere in Chelsea, just a little muck around. I know his mates and the people who manage him.

"He was knocking around in London and wanted a game of football, so they invited me along.

"I brought my brothers with me and we got two teams together.

"It was around about this time last year. Is he any good? He's all right, to be fair! I had him a race!

"There are some videos of it somewhere, it was good fun."
