Manchester United and Wales winger Daniel James is the Euros 2020’s second-fastest player.
That’s according to the official competition’s social channel, who confirmed that James has been clocked sprinting at a rapid 33.5 km/h – which is just over 20mph.

James was back in action on Wednesday when his country took on Turkey in a must-win Group A clash.
Following a hugely impressive performance from the United wide-man, Wales, also with the help of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, were able to secure a vital 2-0 victory.
Despite failing to get on the scoresheet himself, James put in a thoroughly decent performance from start to finish.
Seen a constant threat down Turkey’s right-hand side, James continually ran at their backline, putting several key balls into his opponent’s box.
Most impressively though, the young Welshman, who is best known for his devastating pace, racked up a top speed which sees him narrowly behind Italy and Roma full-back Leonardo Spinazzola (33.8 km/h).
Wales are scheduled to return to action on Sunday when they will face Italy for the right to be declared Group A’s overall winners.
