“I’ve proven to the world I’m the greatest. This is what I came here for. That’s what I’m doing. This is why I said this is my last Olympics — I can’t prove anything else,” Bolt said after winning a race and before announcing his retirement.

In his early years, Usain Bolt, who hails from Trelawney, a small town in Jamaica, started out by playing cricket. He was initially interested in joining the West Indies cricket team when he grew up but his cricket coach saw the young man’s running speed and suggested that Bolt try out in sprinting.

 

And especially Team Pakistan

His favorite player is Waqar Younis and he has called Pakistan cricket team ,”my team”. Oh yes, the world’s fastest man bleeds green.
