Usain Bolt appears in 'endless running' game Temple Run
Champion sprinter comes with a special 'Bolt' ability
The Olympic legacy is finally coming into its own with Usain Bolt on offer as a limited-time purchase for the popular ‘endless running’ game Temple Run 2.
Customers can buy a character sporting Bolt’s name and likeness for just 69p, with the sprinter coming with a unique ‘Bolt’ ability.
Once activated, Bolt-mode makes the sprinter invincible, a coin magnet, and turns on auto-guidance for limited period of time. If none of those words made sense to you then just imagine giving a real-life athlete super-steroids (or just being Usain Bolt – the two are fairly similar).
A sequel to the popular Temple Run, Temple Run 2 amassed 6 million downloads in the first 24 hours after its launch. The original title popularised the 'endless running' genre for mobile devices and has been downloaded more than 170 million times.
At the 2012 Olympics Bolt won the 100 metres sprint with a time of 9.63 seconds, setting a new Olympic record. He then followed this up with a 200 metre time of 19.84 seconds.
This was short of his world-best 2009 time of 19.19 seconds, but still record-breaking: Bolt became the first man in history to defend both the 100m and 200m Olympic titles.
