Usain Bolt’s walk of shame documented by the good will of the public

And, surprisingly enough, he still manages a hangover better than most of us

We’ve all been there; that embarrassing walk home following a big night out where things spiralled out of control.

It’s just that unfortunately for Usain Bolt – Olympic and world sprinting champion – the entire proceedings were caught on camera. He left Mayfair nightclub Mahiki at 3.15am this morning (8 August) looking unarguably worse for wear, and – bottle of water in hand (it had obviously reached that stage in the evening), he valiantly headed to Raffles on the King’s Road with two friends.

In what could be perceived as a drunken stupor or maybe it was just high spirits, he even gamely posed for photographers doing his trademark lightning bolt, before moving on to Raffles.

He ended up in Clapham where he was regrettably photographed by a member of the public at around 8.15am this morning wearing the same “Please comme the f**k down T-shirt” and white trousers from the night before. Perhaps the call of the area’s infamous Infernos nightclub, the infamous site of so much of South London’s depravity, was just too great.

But not for Bolt are wallowing stay-in-bed hangovers; he may or may not have been feeling like an apocalypse but he still managed to attend his dentist appointment on Clapham High Street and cheerily posed with a member of the public for a quick Instagram picture.

Usain Bolt; a gladiator of both the partying and sporting fields.
