Usain Bolt lands in trouble with Jamaican Authorities
Jamaican police have launched a probe into against retired sprinter Usain Bolt’s controversial birthday party.
The athlete turned singer tested positive for Covid-19 barely a week after hosting a mega birthday party.
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist has been the subject of online criticism after photos of his mask free; zero social distancing party went viral.
The outcry attracted the attention of the country’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness who said police will deal with everyone found in breach of the aforementioned regardless of their status.
The Prime Minister categorically stated that no one, including Bolt will be given special treatment should they be found in breach.
Jamaica’s health ministry confirmed late on Monday that Bolt had tested positive for the virus hours after he posted a video on social media around midday saying he had been tested and was awaiting the results.
Chris Martin who had also attended the party has also revealed he is in self isolation after Bolt tested positive.
Martin said that he had taken the decision to self-isolate after hearing the news that Bolt had tested positive for the virus.
