Ghana defender David Addy makes fastest penalty in history, challenges Usain Bolt
Ghana defender David Addy is likely to enter the Guinness Book of Records for probably causing the fastest penalty in the history of football when the Black Stars played Montenegro on Wednesday.
If Jamaican Usain Bolt took 9.58 seconds to break the world record of 100 meters, Addy took almost the same time to make probably the fastest penalty in the world.
The game was only 10 seconds old when the referee of the match between Ghana and Montenegro signaled a penalty for Addy’s hacking down of an opponent in the box.
This has been widely speculated in the Portuguese media as probably the fastest penalty in the history of football even though it has not been corroborated.
Misfortune of misfortunes hit the Vitoria Guimaraes defender as Ghana ended up losing 1-0, precisely due to the converting of the penalty.
