Meanwhile, it is no secret that Bolt loves football and had also tried playing for a couple of Australian football clubs in the past to pursue his love for the game, but failed to prosper as a footballer.
Earlier, Bolt’s long time coach called on Friday for this year’s Tokyo Olympics to be put off until 2021 as the coronavirus pandemic continues to claim lives around the world.
“My recommendation would be to postpone the Olympics until next year,” Jamaican sprint coach Glen Mills told Reuters in a telephone interview.
“This would be unprecedented, but we are in unprecedented time. Move everything up one year and then everything will eventually fall back in place.
“But I don’t think that the Olympics will take place at the time that is specified (July and August) because the outbreak is worldwide and in some countries, it is just starting to accelerate.
“I can’t see the Olympics going ahead; taking persons from all over the world and bringing them to one central point,” Mills said.
