The Rio Olympics is the final time Usain Bolt fans will get to see the sprinter in action during the Games, as he believes he has “done everything” and “proven” himself.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, the Jamaican world record holder said: “Yes, this is the last Olympics for sure, I have proven myself over and over again”.
He added that “a lot of people aren’t happy” about his decision.
Bolt starts his Olympic campaign on August 14. He then plans to run the 100 meters at the 2017 World Championships in London, Sports Illustrated reports.
