Forget the idea that all gamers are overweight and unfit – the fastest man in the world likes nothing more than staying indoors and playing video games, it has been revealed.
Speaking to BBC Radio5 Live ahead of the 200m final at the World Athletics Championship in Berlin tomorrow, Bolt was asked if he’d chance to get out and see any of the city.
“I’m not one for sightseeing,” he confessed. “I prefer to stay in, chill out and play video games.”
When asked what he was currently playing, Bolt claimed: “Right now I like Pro Evolution football game and Call of Duty.”
He was then asked if he was as good at games as he is at sprinting. “Of course, when I play on my own,” he boasted. “But when I play online I can have trouble.”
Earlier this week Bolt smashed the World 100m Record, completing in a mind-numbing 9.58 seconds.
