The fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt has reacted to the feat that was achieved by Nigeria’s Oluwatobiloba Amusan.
Bolt took to his official Twitter account to congratulate the Nigerian for setting a new world record at the World Athletics Championship in Oregon. Bolt is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100 meters and 200 meters titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012, and 2016). He also won two 4 × 100 relay gold medals.
