ATHLETICS FANS the world over have paid tribute to the legendary Jamaican 'Lightening' Bolt in their own ways this week, the week of his retirement and The Voice will certainly be no different.

The first of our tributes to the great Hon. Usain Bolt OJ is a series of career snapshots which capture him at his finest.

Viewers had their hearts in their mouths during this year's IAAF World Championships, which saw the great track hero pick-up an unexpected Bronze on August 5 and last night, pull up due to what appeared to be an injured hamstring.

Here's to a speedy recovery and the shared excitement for the phenomenal sprinter as he moves on to his next challenge.
