Usain Bolt to open new London sports bar?

Usain Bolt could soon open a new sports bar in London, following on from the success of his Tracks and Records bar in Kingston, Jamaica.

The news came on Chris Evans's BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning, after the host spoke to Kevin Bourke, co-founder of KLE Group, which runs the bar on Bolt's behalf.

Bourke said that Tracks and Records, which has been trading for over a year, has 180 seats and a huge screen for watching sports, complemented by a further 40 smaller screens. Bolt has also been known to DJ at the venue.

"We're looking to put one in London very shortly," Bourke said.
