Looks like Usain Bolt has to admit that the late great Marley stands alone as the embodiment of the Jamaican spirit. Earlier this week, we learned that the record-breaking sprinter is a huge fan of the reggae legend. After claiming the gold medal for the 100 meter sprint, Bolt flexed his singing skills by giving an impromtu version of Bob Marley’s “One Love” on-air.
Usain treated the excited reporter and camerman to a surprisingly good rendition of the smash single from Marley’s 1977 Exodus album. It definitely can’t compare to the original, it’s unlikely that our dear old friend Bob himself could run 100-meter sprint in record time. Although his football skills weren’t bad either.
Watch Usain Bolt’s brief version of the song below.
