Access to Usain Bolt has been scarce for the media desperate to speak with arguably the biggest star of the Rio 2016 Games as he prepares to defend his three Olympic titles. However, a group of children from underprivileged communitites surrounding the Jamaican track and field team's training base were invited to meet the reigning 100m, 200m and 4x100m champion on Tuesday (2 August) morning.
“They say these children are from the most dangerous communities (favelas) here in Rio. They are our future and I'm very happy I got to meet them,” Bolt wrote.
