  • Jennifer Bolt has always been a constant figure in Bolt's career over the years as she was usually at the stadium whenever her son was racing
  • Bolt thanked his mother for everything and especially for encouraging him throughout

Sprint legend Usain Bolt warmed the hearts of social media users and definitely that of his mother after he wrote a wonderful birthday message.

Jennifer Bolt turned 60 years of age and her son took to his Twitter page to dot down a few words for her. The two are known for their close bond. Jennifer was always at her son's major events while he was still running.

Wholesome video shows how Usain Bolt was always down to earth during his running days

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported that despite his unrivalled success in sprinting, Usain Bolt loved people and always treated them as equals during his long and illustrious career.

A video doing rounds on social media spotted by Sports Brief shows Bolt interacting and fist-bumping the officials on the tracks before his races always began.

Bolt was often in a relaxed mood, smiling at the officials, making light talk before either hi-fiving or fist-bumping them in an apparent gesture to recognise the work they do.

At the same time, Sports Brief reported that Usain Bolt took to his Twitter account to remind the world that he is still the greatest sprinter the world has ever seen.

A USA Track and Field Magazine FloTrack had pipped Fred Kerley to break Usain Bolt's long-standing record in the 100 metres races.

Kerley is part of the new generation of sprinters that have taken over since Bolt left the scene. Kerley stormed to victory in the finals of the World Athletics Championships in Oregon with a time of 9.86 seconds.
