Fastest man in Africa, Olusoji Fasuba, joins Royal Navy

Africa's 100m record holder, Olympic bronze medallist, indoor 60m world champion, and one of the fastest men on the planet, Nigerian-born Olusoji Fasuba has just completed nine months of training to become a logistics specialist in the Royal Navy.

28 year old Olusoji retired from professional running and joined the Navy last May to provide a more settled life for his wife and baby daughter. He's married to 400m runner Ngozi Nwokocha, and they have seven-month-old daughter Annabelle.

As a runner, Olusoji set an African record in the 100m of 9.85 seconds, just 0.27 of a second slower than the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt.
