Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt has dominated the track events for nearly a decade now, winning many medals and breaking more records. But, now he is all set to retire from the world of athletics after the IAAF World Championships in London. As the date of Bolt’s departure is getting closer, the number of wishes for the Jamaican superstar has increased and now the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has also joined the list. Kohli who is playing a Test series in Sri Lanka right now posted a video on his Twitter account to send across a special message to Usain Bolt.
In this video, the Indian skipper wished Bolt luck for his final race and his future endeavours. Kohli added that Bolt will be missed by him and everyone else in the Puma family. “Hey, Usain! I know it’s your last race we are going to miss you a lot on the track. From me and everyone in the Puma family, we wish you all the very best for this one and all your future endeavours. If you ever wanna play cricket you know where to find me,” he said in this video. For those of you who don’t know, just like Usain Bolt, Virat Kohli too is signed by the sports brand Puma.

“Doesn’t matter if it’s your last competitive race, you will always be #ForeverFastest on and off the track @usainbolt. @PumaCricket,” Kohli wrote as the caption for this video. Bolt has always admitted to his love for cricket and even played in an exhibition match in 2014 against Yuvraj Singh during his maiden India visit. In that match, Bolt had scored 45 runs from 19 balls, in a innings including 5 sixes. The World Championships starts on Friday and Bolt is confident of winning yet another title. He has 8 world titles to go along with eight Olympic golds.
