Play of the day: World's fastest rugby player

Ever wonder how an Olympic-speed sprinter would fare playing rugby sevens?

American athlete Carlin Isles has proved that electric pace is just as exciting on the field as it is the track.

The 23-year old is among the top 40 100m sprinters in the United States and holds a personal best of 10.13, which could have seen him qualify for the semi-finals of the London Olympics.

But Isles has chosen to represent Team USA on the sevens circuit and has scored six sensational tries showcasing his blistering speed.

Isles is unlikely to achieve a spot in the highly competitive USA track team for the Rio Olympics, but will fancy his chances to make the Games as a sevens player, as the sport is included at the Olympics for the first time in 2016.

While Isles is turning heads, America still remain 12th out of 18 teams in the sevens tournament and their highlight of this year's circuit is reaching the cup quarterfinals in South Africa.
