Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams has set a new Spanish La Liga record as the fastest player this season.

The Ghanaian-born Spanish striker recorded a time of 35.71 kilometers per hour on Saturday in their 1-1 drawn game with Deportivo La Coruna at the San Mames.

The 20-year-old has now eclipsed the previous best mark for the distance of 35.53 mph set by Valencia and Algeria attacking midfielder Sofiane Feghouli.

Almeria's Michel is third in a time 35.42 mph with Real Madrid's speedster Gareth Bale claiming fourth fastest player in 34.29 km / h in the Spanish Primera division this season.

Williams had already garnered attention earlier in the season of course, when he became the first black player to score in Athletic Bilbao’s 117-year history after netting against Torino in a 2-2 Europa League draw.

He was handed his debut by Ernesto Valverde in December and has gone on to make 17 appearances in La Liga.

Williams was born in Bilbao to a Ghanaian father and a Liberian mother and joined Athletic’s youth system at 16.
