Watch: Man United superfan Usain Bolt calls Arsenal ‘the best’ while wearing Gunners merchandise

World fastest man Usain Bolt is known to be a Manchester United fan through and through.

And the internet melted down last night when some fans spotted the Jamaican in arch-rival Arsenal’s colours.

Bolt, 32, is one of the most decorated athletes in the world and has won as many as 11 world championships before retiring in 2017.

But after retiring from athletics, the Jamaican went on to pursue his ambition of becoming a professional football player and to play for his dream club Manchester United one day.

He began his football training in Norway before moving to Australia to join A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

The Jamaican soon featured for the Mariners in friendly matches and scored a brace in his second appearance, prompting the New South Wales club to offer him a professional contract.

The contract, however, never realized and in November 2018, Bolt left Australia before eventually announcing his retirement last January.

For someone who went through all this after a phenomenal career in athletics just to realize the dream of playing for Manchester United, even thinking of wearing arch-rivals Arsenal’s shirt should be disastrous.

But in the viral video, the Jamaican can be seen doing exactly that.

He then even went on to kiss the Gunners badge and saying ‘Arsenal is the best’.

Have a look at the clip here –

It is most likely that the track legend has lost a wager with a friend and was forced to recite the words following Manchester United’s 2-0 defeat against the North London side.

And it was not the first time when the Jamaican was forced to a similar act.

Back in 2015, Bolt was forced to take a selfie in Arsenal colours after he lost a bet with avid Arsenal fan and TV presenter Patty Lopez de la Cerda.
