This action-packed footage shows Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, John Stones and Stefan Ortega putting their reaction times to the test – against a professional racing driver.
The footballers went up against Nissan Formula E Team supremo Norman Nato in a timed ‘Batak’ challenge – hitting as many flashing targets as they could.
Each star had 30 seconds to tap out as many lights as possible.
However, it was Nato who took pole position with a score of 51, pipping Stones (50) to the top spot, ahead of Ortega (45) and Haaland (42).
Almost 7 in 10 Brits believe they could compete professionally as a footballer
Manchester City and England defender, John Stones, said: “I was pleased, to be fair. I would have liked to have got one more.
“But it’s not easy, we had a little practice go and I did better than that, and I beat Stef, so I’m happy.”
Nissan Formula E Team driver Norman Nato said: “It’s fun to test myself against the Manchester City players.
“Having fast reactions is so important in top level sport, so it’s an interesting comparison and I’m delighted with the result.”
The sporting crossover came after research found 37 per cent of Brits believe there are certain sports or activities where they could genuinely compete with a professional.
The poll of 2,000 adults found of those who think they could mix with a top-level athlete, a staggering 68 per cent think they could compete professionally as a footballer.
And 43 per cent reckon they’d have the skills to go pro at table tennis.
Another 28 per cent think they’re good enough at pool to mix with professionals, while 22 per cent reckon they’d make it as a pro video game player.
