ROME - Olympic and world sprint champion
Usain Bolt will fly to London after his season's debut on
Thursday to support Manchester United in the Champions League
final against Barcelona at Wembley this Saturday.
"It's a pretty easy question to ask who I'll be supporting,"
Bolt told a news conference on Tuesday before the Golden Gala
Diamond League meeting.
"Everybody knows I'm a Manchester United fan. I think the
score's going to be 2-1 to United."
According to some Italian journalists, Bolt, sporting a blue
polo shirt featuring an Italian flag, could have been mistaken
for Manchester City's Italian footballer Mario Balotelli.
"That's the fourth time I've heard that this morning," he
said. "Balotelli is a great player. He's a little bit aggressive
but that's okay."
Jamaican Bolt, who holds the world records in the 100 and
200 metres, said he intended to take up football when he retires.
"I'm definitely serious," he said. "I'm a football fan. I've
watched these guys a lot and follow the game all the time. I
could mix it with the (Wayne) Rooneys."
