World Cup-winning former India player Yuvraj Singh wished Usain Bolt on his 35th birthday. Yuvraj, along with Bolt, posted a photo on Twitter with a hilarious caption, referring to the Jamaican sprinter as the “King of Speed”. He wrote: “Happy birthday to the king of speed @usainbolt! How come the light catch up with you? #Legend.” The photo shows Bolt flexing his muscles as he laughs with Yuvraj who seems a little impressed with the Jamaican’s biceps.

Bolt has previously played cricket matches at promotional events during his visits to India. He played a cricket match with Yuvraj Singh and later took to the track to race against the Indian cricketer.
Before retiring, Bolt had eight Olympic gold medals, including three consecutive 100-meter gold medals.
He became the first man to win both the 100m and 200m at the same edition of the Olympics since American Carl Lewis in 1984.
Bolt broke both the world records in the 100 and 200 meters in Beijing, finishing in a time of 9.58 sec and 19.19 sec respectively.
After his retirement, Usain Bolt also gave trials in top football clubs to become a professional football player.
Despite scoring a few goals in the trials for the Australian A-League team Central Coast Mariners, Bolt failed to secure a contract.
He trained with Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa, Borussia Dortmund and the Norwegian Stromsgodset.
He later turned down a two-year contract offer from Maltese club Valletta.
