Usain Bolt’s may not have got the perfect sending-off at the World Championships, but the Jamaican track legend sure is enjoying retirement, as is evident by his latest video posted on Twitter.
Bolt had announced he would end his glittering career at the 2017 World Championships in August and hopes were high from fans that the 31-year-old Jamaican would bag the gold medal in both the 100m and the 4x100m relay.
However, a sub-par Bolt could only finish third, behind arch-rival Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, much to the dismay of all gathered at the London Stadium.
It got worse for Bolt and Jamaica, as the sprinter pulled his hamstring in the finals of the 4x100m relay bring his sensational career to an inglorious end.
Despite a severely disappointing final year, Bolt will always be regarded as one of the finest athletes ever, for his tally of eight Olympic golds and 11 World Championship golds is going to be insurmountable to overhaul.
Apart from his obvious athletics prowess, the 6’5 Jamaican was idolised by millions around the world and his showman-like antics before and after races have left a void that world athletics will struggle to fill in the years to come.
Here’s a video of him playing around in a Harry Potter costume:
And another one as a samurai/ninja:
On a lighter note, Bolt stated his desire to become a professional footballer and reportedly held talks with his favourite club, Manchester United, but nothing concrete came of their meeting.
