Usain Bolt shows off his skills during FootVolley game on Rio de Janeiro beach
Jamaican sprinter shows he can play as well as run
Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt might be the fastest man ever, but he can play a bit too.
Fresh from winning the 4x100m relay with his team-mates at the Glasgow Commonwealth games, Bolt was in Brazil as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.
Bolt ran against Briton Mark Lewis-Francis in a special event on the Copacabana beach, winning the four man race in a sluggish (for him) time of 10.06 seconds.
The 27-year-old admitted he needed more races to get fit, saying: "I had a poor start but I regained some of my poise later in the race. I felt a bit heavy, and I need to compete in more races... I will be in better shape after that."
He then took to the beach to take part in FootVolley, volleyball using your feet, showing off a handy flick that won his team a point.
Bolt is an avid Manchester United fan and has previously stated he dreams of one day playing for the club when he retires from athletics.
