Few days ago, Usain Bolt the 8 times Olympics gold medalist dropped a hint that he may come out of retirement. But his fellow former athlete who lives very close to his house in Jamaica Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce felt he quit too early.

” He Bolt does miss the track, he was in football, now he is a producer, he is singing and I was like, sir you could have channel all this energy into tract” she said during a media interaction hours before the Laurus Award Ceremony.
The 3 times Olympics gold medalist also mentioned that Bolt must be thinking like “I am tired and I don’t want to do it anymore”. May be this was his opportunity to dig deeper and deeper than he thought he could. I told him that you miss it but he says “no, you are doing it for all of us”.
