LESSON 9

The fastest goal ever scored and the slowest record to become number one hit in the British pop charts


When Ricardo Olivera of Uruguay heard the referee's whistle blow ... he kicked the ball and ...Goooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaal ! It took just 2.8 seconds!

It first entered the charts in November 1957 and got to number 6, but in 1986 it was used in a television advert, was re-released and came roaring back into the charts to hit the number one spot 29 years and 6 weeks later. It's a song by Jackie Wilson and it's called 'Reet Petite'.
