23-year-old Algerian right-back Youcef Atal who plays for Nice, is the fastest player in the French top flight since the start of the new season according to a revelation made by the French Professional Football League.

Atal was caught on camera during match-day seven of the French Ligue 1, running at a speed of 36.6km/h against Monaco.

That makes him better than Kelvin Amian of Toulouse, Senou Coulibaly of Dijon and Lyle Foster of Monaco.

Atal has scored a goal in seven league appearances for Nice so far this season.

Nice will however be without him this Friday in Match-day 10 of the French Ligue 1, when they host defending champions PSG due to suspension.
