I Am Still Mummy’s Boy – Usain Bolt

By Bola Kougbe

 

Usain Bolt has revealed that his mom still treats him like a little boy despite his success.

The Olympic record breaker in an interview with Coach Magazine, Thursday, said his family has never looked at him differently.

“My family helped me stay grounded. I have never been ‘Usain Bolt the Superstar’ to them, I am always Usain Bolt their little boy.

“If I am home and my mom runs out of milk, she will send me down to the store to get some. My gold medals don’t count for anything, and that is the way I like it”, he said.

Bolt, who said he still lives his normal life and walk around the streets of Jamaica alone, stated that his dream to play for Manchester United is still very much alive. He added that winning the ‘Triple Treble’ at 2016 Rio Olympics made him feel like an ‘immortal’.

“It has always been a dream of mine to play for Manchester United, and it still is a dream.

“I have not spoken with José about it, but I know he is the right coach for the job. Maybe this season we can’t win the title, but big players want to play for Mourinho and I expect more to arrive”, he said.
