Hakimi named Bundesliga's fastest player since data collection began

The Moroccan has impressed domestically and in Europe this season and now has a German record to add to his CV
Borussia Dortmund wide-man Achraf Hakimi has been named the Bundesliga's fastest player on record, with the Real Madrid loanee's feat marking the third time this season that a fresh face has appeared on the top 10 list.

While Germany's top flight may only have began collecting detailed data in the 2011-12 season, current Arsenal man and former Dortmund speedster Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's placement at number seven provides context as to just how impressive the pace in the league is this term.

Hakimi, still just 21, first broke into the top 10 during Lucien Favre's side's action-packed 3-3 draw at home to RB Leipzig, clocking a top speed of 22.49mph (36.20 km/h), according to the Bundesliga's official website, to take him to the summit of the charts.
