Super Darjo: Croatian full back is officially the world's fastest footballer

Now this surprised JOE...

A few days ago, JOE brought you the news that Arjen Robben was officially the worlds fastest player after he left Sergio Ramos for dead in Holland's 5-1 win. Well, much like Spain's hopes at this World Cup that record didn't last long.

Croatia full-back Darjo Srna has surpassed the Bayern Munich winger by clocking in a 32.98km/h sprint in their 4-0 win against Cameroon. While Robben recorded an impressive top speed of 19.3mph, Srna beat the Dutch wing wizard with a sprint that would leave him a whole two kilometres further forward if recorded over an hour-long run, hitting 20.5mph.

Speed

JOE reckons that we will able to run like Srna when we reach 32 also.
