The main man has landed: Usain Bolt touches down in Rio ahead of Olympic Games

 

Usain Bolt touched down in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday (27 July) night ahead of the Olympic Games in which he is expected to be the star attraction.

The Jamaican sprinter, world record holder in the 100m and 200m, arrived at Rio International Airport at 9.02pm local time, after a transatlantic flight from London, where he competed in the Anniversary Games last week.

Bolt was greeted by a scrum of media, excited airport staff and members of the public. He briefly posed for photos but said nothing before being whisked off in a private car.
