PREMIERE LEAGUE: Bolt steals the spotlight at London’s ‘Expendables 2’ debut

PICTURE THIS: The sprinter strikes a cool pose for the cameras.

Are Olympic hero Usain Bolt and his fave Hollywood actor Jason Statham now the best of pals? The two stars were photographed having a blast together on the red carpet at Monday’s British premiere of Statham’s latest movie, the action blockbuster The Expendables 2. The star-packed premiere was held at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.

Not surprisingly, the London triple gold-medallist (who later tweeted a pic of himself and Statham at the event) was the main attraction, even in the presence of the biggest action stars on the planet. According to MSN UK, “The likes of Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme were there, but all eyes were on Bolt.”

Meantime, in the wake of his extraordinary stint at the London Games, Bolt now turns his attention to the Diamond League meets, including the big one – the Athletissima meeting in Switzerland, on August 23. Bolt will mark his 26th birthday on Tuesday, August 21.

ON POINT: Bolt and Statham doing the most famous pose in all of sports.

  1. Usain Bolt, the King of hearts. You have won them all. I thought I heard you say: "Peace on earth goodwill to all men."

    You have been a true ambassador of Jamaica's mission to inspire people out of every tribe and tongue and nation to be "...One People." You have gone "to the world" and collected all the weapons of war in our hearts and replaced them with your gift of joy and peace. May God continue to bless and inspire you abundantly to use your gift to do his work. What a trancendent answer you are to the problems of war and confusion? We who see who you are Love you as you are!
