Usain Bolt loves to play dominoes

While most athletes prefer to stay out of media attention after their careers, Bolt embraces it. He loves the attention and is a true ambassador for the world of sport. Notably, when asked what he does during his free time, Bolt revealed some of his hobbies.

“In my chill time, I do games still, but I play a lot of dominoes. My friends, my close friends are not good at Jamaican dominoes, so we play French dominoes and for me, it’s very intense, but that’s fun. And I’m a binge-watcher, so I like to find a good series and watch. I like to watch Anime, that’s something that right now.”

“I will go home, I’ll watch some anime or find a nice series and just chill,” said Bolt.
