The publication accumulated, this Tuesday morning, more than 600,000 “Likes” on Instagram, 500,000 on Twitter and 300,000 reactions on Facebook.

Usain Bolt, icon in Jamaica for his eight gold medals at the Olympic Games (2008, 2012, 2016), advocates with his compatriots social distancing and confinement to fight against the covid-19 pandemic and limit the progression of the coronavirus. In videos posted on social networks, we saw the retired athlete doing physical exercises or juggling with a soccer ball from his home.
