Luis Advíncula may be the fastest soccer player of them all.

The 28-year-old Peruvian fullback recently clocked a blazing top speed of 22.46 mph during a game in Mexico's top club league, Liga MX.

It's believed to be the fastest speed recorded during a high-level soccer game, breaking Bale's previous record of 22.18 mph.

The record-setting sprint came when Advíncula covered 75 yards in 6.82 seconds to make a potential goal-saving tackle.

During a recent World Cup update of FIFA 18, Advíncula was upgraded from 91 pace to 94 pace.

He may be even faster in the next edition of the popular soccer simulation.
