What would Usain Bolt run in the 40-Yard Dash?
It's a question football fans have pondered for years. Well, the world's fastest man gave it a go at a recent Super Bowl event—in sneakers and sweatpants, no less—and casually tied the NFL Combine record with a blazing 4.22:

Bolt's run was electronically-timed, so there's no funny business here. We can only imagine how fast a time he'd clock in proper attire. The fact there was only about 10 yards of space for him to run beyond the finish line probably didn't help matters, either.
