Eight time Olympic gold medallist – Usain St Leo Bolt has hinted that he could be forced out of retirement by his former coach Glenn Mills.
Bolt, an eleven-time champion retired after the 2017 World Athletic Championships in England, where the Jamaican pulled up in agony in the men’s 4X100m race with just 50 metres to go and collapsed to the track after what was later confirmed to be another hamstring injury.
He refused a wheelchair and crossed the finish line one last time with the assistance of his teammates – Omar McLeod, Julian Forte, and Yohan Blake.
In an interview with the Variety Magazine, the world fastest man said although he has no plans of coming back, he’ll rescind his decision should veteran coach – Glenn Mills ask him to:
“If my coach [Glenn Mills] came back and told me, let’s do it, I will because I believe so much in him.
“I know if he says we’re going to do this, I know it’s possible.
“Give Mills a call, and I will be back,” the 33-year-old Bolt said confidently.
Usain Bolt recently welcomed his daughter, Olympia Lightening Bolt and claim that he is enjoying fatherhood life.
Bolt made his debut as a dancehall music producer in July 2019 with the release of the Olympe Rosé riddim that featured 5 tracks from Jamaican dancehall artistes – Dexta Daps “Big Moves”, Munga Honorable “Weekend”, Christopher Martin “Dweet”, Ding Dong “Top A Di Top” and Ricardo “Bibi” Gardner “Mount A Gyal”.
