Munich: Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski netted the Bundesliga`s fastest hat-trick on his way to a sensational five-goal haul after coming on as a substitute at the start of the second half in their match against VfL Wolfsburg on Tuesday.

The Poland captain instantly turned the game around after the Bavarians trailed 1-0 at halftime, scoring three goals in four minutes 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.

"This is the fastest hat-trick and the fastest five-goal run," the Bundesliga said on Twitter with Bayern leading 5-1 and the game continuing.
