Usain Bolt denies describing the Commonwealth Games as ‘a bit sh*t’
Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has denied saying the Commonwealth Games are ‘a bit sh*t’ after he was quoted by The Times newspaper as saying it during an interview with one of its sports reporters.
After Usain went on twitter to deny making the comments, the newspaper today published the full transcript of their conversation with him, saying they stand by their story 100%. Read the conversation after the cut…
The encounter was reportedly as follows:
Katie Gibbons (KG, Times reporter): Hi Usain, I’m Katie Gibbons, a reporter from The Times. Nice to meet you.
Usain Bolt (UB): Hi.
KG: How are you?
KG: So are you enjoying the games? Are you having fun?
KG: Really, why not?
UB: I’m just not… it’s a bit s *. (Shrugs, looks up to grey sky).
KG: What do you mean?
UB: I’ve only been here two days.
KG: Is it like the Olympics?
UB: Nah. Olympics were better.
KG: Really, how?
KG: Where are you off to now?
UB: To do some business.
Usain is said to have made the comments shortly after meeting Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton. But during an interview later last night, Usain declared the Games as “awesome”
