Meanwhile, Terens Puhiri may not be the finest footballer in the world but if we say the 23-year-old Borneo FC winger is the fastest footballer on the planet we may probably not need the verdict of a seer to authenticate it.
Puhiri is more of a speed than even Cristiano Ronaldo at his prime. The young winger combined the tenacity and speed of legendary Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt.
And that has marked him out as a big thing in Indonesian First Division where he is currently plying his football career.
Standing at 5ft 5in, the top winger from Jayapura, Indonesia has often thrown up a dazzling show to the excitement of the fans, but last year the young winger proved he might be the fastest star on the planet.

Puhiri showcased his lightning-quick speed during the 4-0 demolition of Mitra Kukar, ripping defenders apart with a dangerous counter move.
He slung the ball fast beyond the onrushing goalkeeper and gave a daring speed in what may turn out to be his best performance before firing into the net to send the stadium into a frenzy.
Legit.ng had reported last year that Cristiano Ronaldo was named the second fastest player in the Italian Serie A behind Napoli defender Kostas Manolas, reports in Italy claim.
According to Italian news media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport quoting Football Italia, the Juventus star's speed was set at 34.62km/hour while the Greek defender slightly beats the 34-year-old with a pace of 35.41km/hour.
Simone Zaza of Torino came third recording a top speed of 34.56km/h and Roma's Gianluca Mancini was ranked fourth with 34.46km/hour time.
