Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who netted the Bundesliga's fastest hat-trick on his way to a sensational five-goal haul in September, was officially recognised by Guinness World Record.

Just who is Robert Lewandowski?

The Polish star, who then called the goals ‘just crazy’, was presented four separate official Guinness World Records certificates for the incredible feat.

He scored three goals in four minutes against Wolfsburg, from the 51st to the 55th before quickly adding two more, including a spectacular volley, to become the first Bundesliga player to score five times in nine minutes.

He also won for scoring the fastest four goals in a Bundesliga match (5 minutes 42 seconds), fastest five goals scored in a Bundesliga match (8 minutes 59 seconds) and most goals scored by a substitute in a Bundesliga match (5 goals).
