Usain Bolt is currently recovering from an injury that he picked during a charity Soccer Aid game. The Jamaican sprint star has been receiving positive messages from celebrities who have been wishing him a quick recovery.
The retired sprinter was part of a World XI that was competing against England. The game happened in Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium. He twisted his ankle in the 69th minute. Fans were concerned when they saw him come off the pitch on a stretcher.
After the charity game, the world’s fastest man revealed that his doctors had told him that he was suffering from a ruptured Achilles.
Bolt was one of the standout performers in a game that ended with a score-line 6-3 in favor of England. Bolt’s team lost the match despite being made up of some of the best retired footballers. His teammates included Petr Čech, Alessandro Del Piero, Eden Hazard, Roberto Carlos, Mikel John Obi, Michael Essien and Patrice Evra.
Bolt, who was the captain of his team, provided an assist that was finished off by Alessandro Del Piero. The legendary striker rolled back the years to score a goal that is similar to the one he scored for Italy in the 2006 World Cup.
Bolt shared a photo of himself holding a pair of crutches. He was also wearing a moon shoe in his right leg.
Most of the people sending positive messages were athletes and entertainers.
Justin Gatlin; one of Bolt’s toughest competitors, commented: “Bro have you forgotten that we retired? What are you doing out there 😂?”
Bounty Killer, one of the leading Jamaican artiste said: “Have a bolt and speedy recovery 👏🏾”
Chris Gayle, who is a legendary cricket player wished his friend a speedy recovery and made light comment about his “mashed up leg”.
This year’s charity match raised more than £15 million. UNICEF will use this money to fund children programs around the world. Their aim is to ensure that children are happy and healthy. The event was started by Robbie Williams in 2006.
England normally faces off against the World XI squad at least once every year.
