BRITNEY Spears today claimed to have run 100 metres in less than six seconds – making her the fastest athlete on the planet.
The singer-turned-runner's as-yet-unverified achievement would put her way ahead of the likes of Usain Bolt, who completed the distance in a meagre 9.58 seconds.

Toxic singer Britney, 38, told fans she usually manages the feat in six or seven seconds but today broke the barrier and did it in just over five.
Posting on Instagram, she wrote: "Ran my first 5 !!!! Getting over your fear of pushing it in the beginning is key… once I did that I hit 5 !!!!!
"Usually I run 6 or 7… my first try was 9… and now I did it whoop !!!!! 100 meter dash 🏃🏼♀️🌸💕😉 !!!!!"
And to prove it, she posted her time, of 5.97 – though many fans were a little sceptical about her record-breaking claim.
