World Cup 2014: Arjen Robben sets a World-Record Against Spain

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf clocked Arjen Robben sprinting at a stunning 37 kilometres per hour (22.9 mph) during the Netherlands victory against Spain last week.

This beat the previous record set by Arsenal’s Theo Walcott—35.7 kmph (21.8 mph).

To put things into context, when Usain Bolt set the 9.58sec 100m world record, he was clocked at 27.7 mph.
