Usain Bolt skins Gary Neville before humiliating cynical foul at Soccer Aid 2021

Usain Bolt left Gary Neville chewing dust during Soccer Aid – and fans can't get enough of it.

The two sporting legends lined up against each other at the Etihad for the annual charity match between England and a World XI in aid of UNICEF UK.

Neville, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, faced some of the world's best centre-forwards during his long and successful time at Manchester United.

However, he's probably never come up against someone as quick as 100m world record holder Bolt, who even at the age of 35 remains one of the fastest men on the planet.

The eight-time Olympic gold medal winner showed his trademark pace to full effect at the Etihad, skinning the helpless Neville on the edge of the box.

Left for dead by his much quicker opponent, Neville had no option but to bring the Jamaican ace down for a free-kick in a dangerous position.

His mistake almost proved costly too, as former Inter Milan, AC Milan and Real Madrid legend Clarence Seedorf struck the post with a superb effort.
