KING'S TOWN: Edward Baugh + Konshens + Victor Chang + Busy Signal + Portmore's Futsal Champs + Stephen Miller + Usain Bolt

PARTY OVER HERE: May 24, Kingston. Amidst confetti and the deafening shouts and vuvuzela horns of spectators, the lions of Portmore celebrated the triumph as overall victors of the 2015 LIME-sponsored National Street Futsal competition inside the National Indoor Sports Centre on Sunday. Portmore, who beat determined rivals St. Thomas to lift the championship trophy, took home the coveted $1.5 million prize, presented by LIME's VP of Marketing, Carlo Redwood, who has vowed to introduce the futsal phenom to local high schools. Incidentally, an All-Manning versus All-DaCosta exhibition game preceded the final, during which the Miguel Coley-coached urban boys got the better of their rural counterparts. (Photo: LIME Jamaica)

THE FRONT PAGE: May 26, Czech Republic. By all appearances, Usain Bolt's 2013 autobiography, Faster than Lightning, is still a top seller in Europe. While celebrating his win in the 200M at the Ostrava Diamond League meet in the Czech Republic on Tuesday, Bolt's young fans turned up with quite a few copies to be inked with the signature of the World's Fastest Man. As ever, the Jamaican sprinter, who next competes in New York and Paris ahead of the Beijing World Championships this summer, graciously obliged. (Photo: AFP/Getty Images)

POWER PLAYERS: May 24, Kingston. There are those live performers who seem to get better with the years, and Busy Signal (right) is no exception. LIME's Sponsorship Manager, Stephen Miller, must have been offering his congratulations to the dynamic star, who lit up the National Indoor Sports Centre with a sizzling mix of artistry and showmanship as he entertained the packed venue at Sunday's LIME-sponsored National Street Futsal grand finale.

GAME FACES: May 24, Kingston. You can say this for Konshens: he always sets aside time for the fans. They were out in their numbers on Sunday at the LIME-sponsored National Street Futsal Finals at the National Indoor Sports Centre, where the dancehall megastar delivered a piping-hot set, proving that sports and live music can produce a combustible mix.

The day-long fiesta, celebrating its fourth anniversary at the Two Seasons Guest House, also drew appearances by Lorna Goodison, Amina Blackwood-Meeks, Mervyn Morris and Cherry Natural, among others.
