Legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt was among a slew of celebrities, such as R&B singer Usher, that attended Sunday’s Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Though Bolt found time for pleasure, the Olympic champion was in the United Arab Emirates for business and attended Puma’s family event in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. During his presentation at the event, Bolt recapped his partnership with the athletic wear company with a video reel of ads that he was featured in throughout his career.
Bolt first signed with Puma when he was in his teens, and in 2013, at the peak of his career, he inked an estimated $10 million a year sponsorship deal that would see him through to the end of his track and field career. The sprint champion also has a lifetime partnership with the German company that is not predicated on him being an athlete.
After fulfilling his business obligations, the 200m world record holder, who remains the fastest man alive, satiated his other need for speed at Formula 1’s season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. A host of notable individuals came out to watch this year’s grand finale, and Bolt shared a few quick photos from the event on his Instagram page, showing himself joined by Usher, fellow sprinter Marcell Jacobs, actor Martin Lawrence, and rapper will.i.am.
In a post with the accompanying caption, “Yaad Man Thing.. Country Yute Thing.. Jamaica Thing… To Di World We Say,” Bolt shared a photo of him with West Indies and Jamaica Tallawahs cricketer Chris Gayle, who was also in attendance.
