Bolt tries to wear out Aguero ahead of Manchester derby

Record-breaking sprinter and fervent Manchester United fan Usain Bolt has never shied away from trying to help out the Red Devils.

Inspiration seemed to strike Bolt ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby between United and City.

Under the pretense of trying to make City striker Sergio Aguero faster, Bolt seizes the opportunity to try and wear out the Argentine speedster.

The Jamaican plays a series of horrible passes for Aguero to chase down, much to Aguero’s chagrin. Ever brimming with energy, however, “Kun” keeps up the pace.

Looks like Bolt will have to leave it Rooney & Co. to finish the job on Sunday.

Gareth Bolt? Real Madrid star clocked at 25mph

Is the world’s most expensive footballer also the world’s fastest?

New Real Madrid star Gareth Bale insists he hasn’t yet reached his top fitness levels, but a radar gun tells a quite different story. According to Spanish TV station La Sexta, Bale was clocked sprinting at 40 kmh in last Sunday’s draw with Villarreal. That’s almost 25 mph, or just 2 mph behind Usain Bolt at his world record speed!

Usain Bolt gives David Moyes transfer advice

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is a renown Manchester United fan —he was even supposed to play for United in Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial match this summer — and on account of his Red Devils not spending any money so far in the summer transfer window, he offered some fantastic advice to manager David Moyes via his Instagram.


The fastest man alive asked — no, demanded — Moyes to buy a creative midfielder, preferably someone with a FIFA rating of at least 90 in “ball control.”

Usain Bolt to Prince Harry: Don’t Let Your Son Support Villa!

Just a few days after the birth of the next Monarch in line for the British throne, Premier League club Aston Villa wasted little time sending out a care package to the newborn. While the PR stunt won the club a bit of attention in the English press, recent comments made by Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt are bringing the club an entirely different sort of attention…

In a recent newspaper interview with the Birmingham Mail, Bolt had less than positive comments about the club: 

"I want to give all my best to the Prince and Duchess on their firstborn. I just hope he doesn’t follow in his daddy’s footsteps and become an Aston Villa fan. It isn’t fair to put a child through that - especially not a prince. When the prince is old enough, I’d love to take him to Old Trafford. It’s only fair he gets to support a winning team."

That’s definitely harsh, but is it really that far off? Of course, a real prince would just make sure that Villa won the Premier League every season, but it remains to be seen if Prince Georgie has a lot in common with a certain Joffrey Baratheon…

Ever since he helped out Cristiano Ronaldo with his sprinting technique when the Portuguese striker was at Manchester United, the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, has expressed a wish to play for the Red Devils.

Some within the club even reciprocate his wish, with defender Rio Ferdinand leading the clamor for Bolt to pull on a red shirt and turn out for the Premier League champions.

Well finally, we and Rio are gonna get our wish!

That’s right. Usain Bolt will apparently take his place alongside United’s current greats in Rio’s testimonial against Sevilla on August 9.

It must have taken a lot for Rio to convince new boss David Moyes to sign Bolt up for one game only, but it will certainly put all eyes on Old Trafford to see whether Bolt’s soccer skills can match his sprint speed.
