Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who suffered an injury in the final leg of the 4×100-meter relay at the world championships in London last weekend, released a medical scan of his hamstring injury over Twitter on Thursday, then later deleted the tweet. When Bolt sent the original tweet, he said he did it after listening to “people questioning if I was really injured.”
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist was in tears on the track after pulling up in his last race ever on Saturday. Bolt won’t appear in the Manchester United Legends match next month due to the injury.
“Sadly I have tear of the proximal myotendineous junction of biceps femoris in my left hamstring with partial retraction. Three months rehab,” Bolt wrote in the original tweet before deleting. “I have never been one to cheat my fans in any way & my entire desire at the championship was run one last time for my fans.”
Bolt has been considered the fastest man alive for nearly a decade. Nine years ago, he won his first Olympic gold in the 100-meter dash — by a landslide — and broke the world record.
