USAIN BOLT SILENCES DOUBTERS ABOUT INJURY VIA TWITTER POST!

KINGSTON, Jamaica— Eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt took to Twitter posting medical proof of a torn hamstring in an effort to silence doubters who questioned whether he was genuinely injured during 4×100 relay final at the World Championship in London last Saturday.

It is reported by various media outlets that Bolt shared an image — which he later deleted — of a medical scan showing a torn hamstring.

Alongside the post he wrote, ”sadly I have tear of the proximal myotendineous junction of biceps femoris in my left hamstring with partial retraction. 3 months rehab.”

“I don’t usually release my medical report to the public but sadly I have sat and listened to people questioning if I was really injured.

“I have never been one to cheat my fans in anyway & my entire desire at the championship was run one last time for my fans.

“Thanks for the continued support my fans and I rest, heal and move onto the next chapter of my life,” the Twitter post ended.

Bolt’s injury and three month rehab may prevent him from playing in Manchester United’s charity match against Barcelona next month.

The 30-year-old sprint legend was supposed to play alongside the likes of Andy Cole, Edwin van der Sar, Paul Scholes, Jesper Blomqvist, Denis Irwin, Ronny Johnsen, Dwight Yorke, Wes Brown and Phil Neville at Old Trafford on September 2.
