Usain Bolt attends Aston Villa game

With the final whistle gone, the legendary sprinter sang the famous soccer anthem ‘Sweet Caroline.’ It was a truly momentous occasion for the sprinter. Luckily, a fan was able to record it.

A die-hard Manchester United fan, Bolt attended the game to see his Jamaican friend Leon Bailey play in the match. Although United got handed a drubbing by Watford, Bolt enjoyed his time at Villa Park. Steven Gerrard replaced Norwich boss, Dean Smith, at Villa, getting his Premier League management career to the perfect start.

The reason he came to see was Bailey as he arrived only during the 66th minute. And Bailey became the difference for Aston Villa. His incredible technical dribbling, followed by his bursts of speed, was put on full display for Bolt and the Villa fans.
