Usain Bolt Denies Calling Commonwealth Games a “Bit Sh*t”

Usain Bolt has strongly denied reports that he branded the Commonwealth Games “a bit shit” after it was reported yesterday that the athlete wasn’t enjoying his time in Glasgow, Scotland.

Yesterday, The Times had claimed that the Jamaican sprinter had made disparaging comments about the athletics event, saying that the London 2012 Olympics were better. However, Bolt has denied that he had ever said such a thing, taking to his Twitter account to vent his frustration.

Bolt tweeted: “I’m waking up to this nonsense..journalist please don’t create lies to make headlines.”

Responding to Bolt’s alleged comments, a spokesperson for the Commonwealth Games said: “The Glasgow Games have so far been fantastic and everyone there, including the competing athletes, seems to be having a brilliant time. Usain Bolt must just be having an off day.”

Fellow Jamaican sprinter Jason Livermore had suggested that all was not well within the athlete’s village, telling the BBC: “Well it can be better – things can be a little bit better for us. Can be better in a lot of sense. We have to just enjoy and give god thanks.”

Bolt will be making an appearance on the track this weekend, as the 100m record holder is set to take part in the 4x400m relay.
