Quote Of The Day
“There are probably a couple of things worth saying about Bolt. The first is that his retirement is already the most interesting point of the sporting summer. In part because he remains the greatest in an event that for all the fog and noises off retains its razor-edge fascination, a basic register of human ultimacy. And in part just for his own warmth, his status as surely the most popular, most widely-cherished sports person on the planet. This is the other thing about trying to describe Bolt. You keep coming up against the need to find some new way of saying how much you like him, or how much other people like him. From the dream-like ignition of Beijing to the stately grandeur of Rio, the crowds have loved him. The people on my flight back to London from Brazil last year … they loved him too. You, reading this. You love him too. No. Not like. Love. Give in to it.”
