The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, yesterday took to popular online social networking website Twitter to express his sheer disappointment regarding the theft of a prized pair of Puma track shoes in the town of Croydon in London, England, recently.
After setting a new 100 metre world record in 2009, Bolt reportedly signed the spikes which were later framed with an accompanying photograph for display. The pair of spikes was reportedly worth approximately £20,000.
According to Scotland Yard, the items were taken from a warehouse located on Gloucester Road in Croydon, London, England, between the dates of April 26-28.
Seemingly disappointed, Bolt called on the robbers to return the shoes, tweeting: “I know u love me … but please why u had to go stealing that signed Usain Bolt spikes in Croydon, England, … I know u going to return it. Right?”
Additionally, the track star tweeted: “Breaking News … All you had to do was just ask me for one … No need to go stealing the ppl things..Come on now..” with an attached photograph of a newspaper article made about the stolen pair.
Meanwhile, British officials are urging persons with information leading to the whereabouts of the missing spikes to contact them.
