Usain Bolt, farewell to London 2017, photo by PhotoRun.net
RunBlogRun opines: The room for the London pressers fit, comfortably, about 150. In this presser, there were at least 250 people, and it was, well, a madhouse.
Usain Bolt patiently answered all questions, with the exception of a writer who repeated the exact question from before.
Watch this entire video, as Usain makes some good comments. More importantly, he was honest about his feelings on this less than glorious day. When I was asked by Japanese TV who will replace Usain Bolt, I told them, that no one could.
That is the wrong question, in fact.
