    Humans could one day be able to run at 40 miles per hour - more than 12mph quicker than the world's fastest man Usain Bolt, according to scientists.

    A man able to run at 40mph would cross the finishing line in a 100 metre sprint race just as Olympic and world champion Bolt reached the 60 metre mark.

    Scientists calculated the ultimate possible running speed by calculating the quickest rate at which muscles in the body can biologically move.

    Previous studies have suggested the main hindrance to speed is that our limbs can only take a certain amount of force when they strike the ground but the new research suggests it's the contraction of our muscles that holds the key.

    It's not that we are incapable. We have woman, why should we!
