Usain Bolt reveals he suffered shocking injury playing in Soccer Aid

Usain Bolt reveals he suffered shocking injury playing in Soccer Aid

Usain Bolt suffered a brutal injury in his latest Soccer Aid appearance and had to be stretchered off at Stamford Bridge.

Usain Bolt has given an update on his condition after he was stretchered off in his latest Soccer Aid appearance.

The world's fastest man is a regular in the UNICEF charity game and captained the Rest of the World against England in his sixth appearance.

Bolt, wearing 9.58 on his back, had a hand in two goals in the first half. He won the free-kick which Eden Hazard scored from after being taken out by Danny Dyer, before laying on a glorious assist for Alessandro Del Piero.

Bolt wasn't able to add to his Soccer Aid goals tally and had to do a stint at centre-back later on.

But on a Stamford Bridge pitch that clearly still needs some work before the next season starts, Bolt pulled one while trying to defend against Jermain Defoe.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist fell to the floor, allowing the former England striker to finish past Tony Bellew.

Bolt then required medical attention and left the pitch on a stretcher in the 6-3 loss.

On social media, the Jamaican has since informed fans that he suffered a ruptured achilles that will require surgery.

Accompanied by a snap of him in a protective boot and with crutches, he wrote: "Raptured [sic] Achilles but done know we a warrior."

England finally won the fixture for the first time since 2018 as more than £15 million was raised to help underprivileged children around the world.

There were fine performances from Joe Cole and Jack Wilshere, but the absolute best moment came when boxer Tommy Fury tried to roll the ball into play.

The ball had gone out for a throw-in on the right and Fury, wearing the number zero to acknowledge his number of losses, elected to go for an under-arm roll.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino and his coaching team were in absolute stitches on the bench, offering a priceless reaction.
