Lightning Bolt Cut Short After Bolt’s Achilles Burst


The Fall of a Legend: Usain Bolt’s Soccer Charity Match Ends in Injury

After being stretchered off the field during a charity soccer match in London, Usain Bolt shockingly revealed a ruptured Achilles.

Bolt’s Illustrious Career

The news sent shockwaves throughout the sports world, as Bolt is a legendary track star known for his blazing speed and multiple Olympic gold medals. Eight years after his last Olympic triumph and still holding the world records in the 100-meter (9.58) and 200-meter (19.19) races, the 37-year-old Jamaican continues to captivate audiences.

The Soccer Match that Changed Everything

In the Soccer Aid charity game organized by UNICEF, Bolt joined the Soccer Aid World XI FC alongside notable players like Eden Hazard and Tommy Fury. The match pitted them against the English All-Stars. Unfortunately, fate had a different plan for Bolt.

Despite playing in the match last year and even scoring a goal, Bolt’s run this time ended abruptly when he sustained the serious injury. The English team emerged victorious with a 6-3 score, with Joe Cole, Ellen White, and Steven Bartlett making significant contributions.

The Charity and its Impact

Despite Bolt’s unfortunate injury, the charity event was a huge success, raising over million for UNICEF. The funds will aid the organization’s efforts to provide critical aid to children around the world.

Bolt’s Foray into Soccer

Bolt had previously expressed an interest in pursuing a career in professional soccer. In 2018, he joined the Central Coast Mariners soccer club of Australia’s A-League. While he scored two goals against an amateur club in a friendly, he ultimately left the club in January 2019 and declared his retirement from professional sports.


The news of Bolt’s injury is a disheartening reminder of the fragility of athletic pursuits. While his soccer dream may have been cut short, his legacy as one of the greatest track stars of all time remains untarnished. The world joins Bolt in wishing him a speedy recovery.
