The Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt, who recently won the gold medal in 100 metres run at the Olympics for the record third successive time loves cricket and is a fan of Waqar Younis, Sachin Tendulkar and his fellow countryman Chris Gayle.
He has kept his post-retirement plans open and takes even cricket and football as a game seriously.
As a young kid, Bolt was a Pakistan cricket team supporter and idolised Waqar Younis. He had once famously said, “The person I looked up to was Waqar Younis because he had a great in-swinging yorker. He was wonderful. Pakistan was my team when I was six when I started watching cricket. I enjoyed watching them play.”
