The day before the annual Laureus award ceremony in Paris, a meeting took place between the legendary athlete Usain Bolt and the new leader of Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham.

The athletes met on the red carpet, and for a joint photo, they performed Bellingham's iconic celebration, where he spreads his arms wide.

Yesterday, Bellingham repeated this celebration after scoring the winning goal in El Clásico, which ended 3-2 in favor of Madrid.

Usain Bolt remains the record holder in the 100-meter dash. In 2009, the Jamaican sprinted the distance in 9.58 seconds, a record that still stands unbroken.

Laureus is an annual award presented to the best athlete of the year. In 2024, the contenders are:

  • Novak Djokovic - Tennis
