This questionable achievement puts the Baby One More Time singer as the fastest person in history, nearly four seconds better than Usain Bolt’s record setting time in 2009.

Bolt set a blistering time of 9.58 seconds to beat his own 100m world record at the 2009 World Athletics Championships in Berlin.

What is more likely is that Spears just got her distances mixed up.

Fans commented underneath her Instagram post: ‘Impressive time’, ‘100 metres in under 6 seconds, watch out usain bolt’ and ‘so you broke the 100m world record?’
