David Beckham Meets Usain Bolt For the First Time

David Beckham Meets Usain Bolt For the First Time

David Beckham appeared in awe after meeting Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt for the first time.

The Manchester United legend caught up with the world’s fastest man last night and it was no surprise to see a picture of the pair arm in arm appear on his Instagram this morning.

Bolt’s a big United fan so will be well aware of who Beckham is – but we’re surprised this is the first time they’ve met considering how big they are in their respective sports.


Becks took to Instagram and told how it was a pleasure to meet Bolt, who is fresh from winning three sprinting gold medals at the Olympics in Rio:

Great sporting pictures don’t get much better than the world’s fastest man standing alongside one of football’s most respected former players.

While Bolt may call time on his glorious sprinting career soon, Becks hung up his boots three years ago at the end of a memorable playing tenure.
