After his apparent injury in the relay at the World Championships, there were those who questioned whether he really suffered an injury in his farewell race.

Bolt, who pulled up in closing stages of the anchor leg of the relay, fell to the ground before getting back up and walking across the finish line.

On Thursday, Bolt took to Twitter to share a photo of his injury and addressed those who did not believe that he was injured. The tweets were deleted shortly after being posted.

"Sadly I have a tear of the proximal myotendinous junction of biceps femoris in my left hamstring with partial retraction. 3 months rehab. I don't usually release my medical report to the public but sadly I have sat and listened to people questioning if I was really injured.

He added: "I have never been one to cheat my fans in anyway & my entire desire at the championship was run one last time for my fans. Thanks for the continued support my fans and I rest, heal and move onto the next chapter of my life #Love&LoveAlone"

It had been planned for the 30-year-old sprinting great, a lifelong Manchester United fan, to play against Barcelona Legends in a charity match to raise money for the Manchester United Foundation.
