Bolt trying to recover missing millions
World 100 and 200 metres record holder Usain Bolt is facing a “stressful situation” trying to recover more than $12.7 million ($A18 million) that has disappeared from his account with a Jamaican investment firm.
The 36-year-old Bolt earlier this month was informed his account balance at Kingston-based Stocks and Securities Ltd (SSL) had inexplicably dwindled to just $12,000 ($A17,000), lawyer Linton Gordon told Reuters on January 17.
“It’s tough you know, but I think through the years I’ve competed it has helped me to understand and focus on what matters,” Bolt told reporters on Friday.
He was speaking at the Gibson McCook Relays launch in Kingston where he was unveiled as the ambassador of the athletics meet, now in its 50th year.
