Bolt: I’m impressed by Brazil
The fastest man on earth visited FIFA on Wednesday. Usain Bolt, who holds the world record for both the 100- and 200-metre sprints, dropped in on the Home of FIFA in Zurich ahead of the IAAF Diamond League meeting Weltklasse Zürich on Thursday evening at the Letzigrund Stadium.
The Jamaican, a huge football fan who has often flirted with the idea of playing professionally after he retires from the track, was greeted by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and Fuleco, the official mascot for the next FIFA World Cup™. President Blatter handed ‘Lightning Bolt’ a FIFA No9 shirt and personally invited the man who recently turned 27 to the 2014 FIFA World Cup next year in Brazil.
