Bolt making fast friends in village
Usain Bolt claims he had a low-key celebration after winning the 100 meters. But what’s that on Twitter?
The world’s fastest man tweeted a photo of himself and three Swedish handball players in the wee morning hours after his win.
‘‘Whatcha want to know?’’ he replied after initially claiming he ‘‘just chilled.’’
‘‘I went to the cafeteria to get some food, I saw them and we started talking. They wanted pictures. We chilled. I told them I had a great idea for a picture. So we took a picture.’’
Well, everyone wants to know what the world’s fastest man is going to do after the London Olympics. How about playing a little soccer for Manchester United?
Bolt said he would like to play for one of the Premier League’s heavyweights.
‘‘People think I am joking, but if [United coach] Alex Ferguson called me up and said, ‘OK, let’s do this, come and have a trial,’ it would be impossible for me to say no,’’ Bolt said.
But the Jamaican sprinter said he wouldn’t do it unless he believed he had the skills to be a factor on the field.
‘‘I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough,’’ Bolt said. ‘‘I am in Britain for a few more days. If Alex Ferguson wants to give me a call, he knows where I am.’’
