If you’ve been on social media today, you’ve probably seen the clip of Steve Bruce running really, really quickly, on FIFA 22.
Miguel Almiron has seemingly scored the winning penalty for Newcastle in a shootout and, as the rest of his teammates run towards him to celebrate, there’s one man who appears to be sprinting past them all.

As the substitutes make their way onto the pitch, the Magpies’ boss, Bruce, overtakes the entirety of the bench at lightning speed.
Without being disrespectful to the 60-year-old, it’s hard to imagine that he could run that fast in his playing days, let alone now.
But, according to one of his former players, Curtis Davies, there’s a chance that Bruce can run that fast – but only when dessert is served at the training ground on a Friday.

Davies, who was coached by the Newcastle boss at Hull City, said on social media that he has seen Bruce sprint like that when the chef, Ian Mills, serves the crumble.
The Derby defender joked: “I’ve seen this at Cottingham when [Ian Mills] served the crumble on Fridays [wink emoji] [laugh emoji].”
Martyn Waghorn, who also briefly played under Bruce at Sunderland, clearly agreed with Davies’ suggestion, as he replied with a telling amount of laughing faces.
EA SPORTS have announced the quickest players to appear in FIFA 22, with PSG forward Kylian Mbappe taking top honours as the game’s fastest with a gigantic pace score of 97 out of 99.
A clip of Wolves winger Adama Traore outraged at his pace score previously went viral, but he’ll now be delighted, after being named as the joint-second fastest player in the game with a score of 96.
It looks like both of those players would struggle to beat Bruce in a race, according to the game, with the clip showing the former defender running past both Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson.
