JOHANNESBURG – Ian Forbes, the vice president of Jamaican Athletics says Usain Bolt will be missed from the team after his upcoming retirement.
However, Forbes has said that the sprinter will stick around and remain a 'motivator' for the team once he retires.
"He's inspirational, a team player, gets on very well and it helps to, as we say in Jamaica, create a good vibe,” Forbes said.
“Of course, we'll miss the antics as well but we have others coming up... but we have some others coming up who are, in terms of personality similar, of course their own style…but we'll miss him.”
“I think he has promised he'll be around the sport and we'll have access to him and he'll be a great motivator for all of us moving forward
