Chelsea star and Spanish midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, has received another honour to his cabinet by earning a spot in the 2019 Guinness World Book of Records.

The World Cup winner and two-time Premier League champion earned the spot after becoming the fastest player to reach 100 Premier League assists.

‘I’m not the fastest, I’m not the strongest, I’m not the most flexible, I don’t jump high,’ Fabregas said.

‘But to achieve this record in my career is one of the proudest things in my job because it is my job and I did it well.’

The landmark assist came on 31 December 2016, in his 293rd match.

That pass, which set up Willian in Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Stoke City, made him the record-holder for the fastest time to achieve 100 assists in the league, 74 matches sooner than Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs in second place with 367 matches.

The former Arsenal midfielder earned his first World Record title away from the football pitch and on the set of Sky 1’s ‘A League of Their Own’ back in July 2017. He became the joint holder of ‘The most volley passes in 30 seconds by a pair’ with 15 successful passes when he appeared alongside regular team captain and former England and Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp,
