Usain Bolt has tweeted a denial of the Times’ claim that he called the Commonwealth Games 'a bit shit.' Not entirely surprising, really.
I’m waking up to this nonsense..journalist please don’t create lies to make headlines

Bolt’s manager, Ricky Simms, said the reports were “utter rubbish” and added: “The atmosphere in and around the stadiums has been absolutely fantastic and I have absolutely no idea where these quotes have come from.”
According to the Times, the Olympic champion was asked if he was having fun at the games, to which he replied “not really”. Waiting for his car in the drizzle he added that the games were “a bit shit”, and that the Olympics “were better”, before leaving to “do some business”.
