Players RUN during a game

There’s an old wives’ tale that the average NBA player will run five miles every game.
Rightly or wrongly it is something that is hugely applauded in this country, but of the Premier League’s high-earning stars, who really are the most hard working?
Tennis has been keeping track of running stats for quite a while now, though, and you often seen those number during TV broadcasts.
Football players have an expansive 100-yard field, and spend hours moving up and down it. So it would seem like they do a lot of running. That’s true enough—while the ball is in play.
