EIGHT-TIME OLYMPIC gold medallist Usain Bolt made a statement at Mercedes-Benz Stadium ahead of Super Bowl LIII.

Wearing just sweats and sneakers, Bolt casually ran a 40-yard dash as part of a promotional event with Puma, and in the process he matched the fastest time in NFL Combine history.

The 32-year-old retired Jamaican sprinter is not showing any signs of slowing down as he ran a time of 4.22 seconds, which matched the all-time fastest mark set by Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross in 2017.

Bolt is the only athlete in history to win Olympic 100-metre and 200m titles at three consecutive Olympics. He retired from track in 2017 after the IAAF World Championships.
