Manchester United’s in-house television channel MUTV got a shock when Usain Bolt called up to discuss the 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last night.
In the traditional post-match phone-in, MUTV presenter Mandy Henry introduced the next called as being a “Usain from Jamaica” and added: “It’s not Usain Bolt is it?”
Bolt, a triple-triple Olympic champion and the fastest man of all-time. replied: “It is Usain Bolt”.
Henry still looked disbelieving as Bolt gave his opinion on United’s win, saying: “They came through like the old Manchester United.
“They came through and pushed on and persevered, the Manchester United way. It was a great match, I am very happy about this.”
Sorry Usain – we didn't think it was you! Enjoy your celebrations in Jamaica & call again after West Ham on Monday night! https://t.co/64hfB6l5Gk

Bolt then tweeted to confirm it was indeed him, with Henry replying to him apologising and telling him to call again soon.
