MANCHESTER United's in-house television channel received a shock when Usain Bolt called up to discuss yesterday morning's (AEST) 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in the English Premier League.
In the post-match phone-in, MUTV presenter Mandy Henry introduced the next caller as a "Usain from Jamaica” but then added: "It's not Usain Bolt is it?”
The six-time Olympic champion replied: "It is Usain Bolt.”
Henry still looked disbelieving as Bolt delivered his post-match analysis.
"They came through like the old Manchester United,” Bolt said.
"They came through and pushed on and persevered, the Manchester United way. It was a great match, I am very happy about this.”
The Jamaican sprinter tweeted to confirm he was the caller and Henry replied : "Sorry Usain - we didn't think it was you! Enjoy your celebrations in Jamaica & call again after West Ham on Monday night!”
