Usain Bolt, the world record holder for the 100 and 200 meters, sustained a serious injury during the “Soccer Aid” charity Football match at Stamford Bridge stadium. Representing the Soccer Aid World XI team, Bolt faced off against the England national team in a thrilling match that aimed to raise funds for UNICEF.

Despite initially downplaying the severity of the injury, it became evident that Bolt had ruptured his Achilles tendon when he was carried off the field on a stretcher. The incident occurred while Bolt, 37, was defending for his team, and he later took to social media to confirm the extent of his injury.

Raptured Achilles but done know we a warrior,” wrote Bolt alongside a picture of him on crutches from the dressing room in London.

It has been almost seven years since Bolt retired from athletics. His last comPetition was the World Championship in London in 2017. He won gold in the 100m and 200m three times in a row at the Olympic Games from Beijing to Rio. His times of 9.58 in the 100m and 19.19 in the 200m are still the best results of all time.
