Usain Bolt Ruptures Achilles in Soccer Aid Charity Match

Usain Bolt is currently recuperating after sustaining a ruptured Achilles tendon during the annual Soccer Aid charity match.

The match, held to raise funds for UNICEF, featured England XI against World XI at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Bolt, who led the World XI team under the guidance of coach Mauricio Pochettino, suffered the injury in the 63rd minute while attempting to thwart England XI forward Jermaine Defoe, who subsequently scored.

The 37-year-old had to be carried off the field on a stretcher.


Taking to social media later, Bolt confirmed the severity of his injury, describing it as a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Despite the setback, he stated, “Ruptured Achilles but you know we’re warriors,” alongside a photo of himself using crutches.

Numerous well-wishers, including former West Indies cricket captain Chris Gayle, Reggae Boyz defender Damion Lowe, American sprinter Trayvon Bromell, former Olympic 100m champion Justin Gatlin, former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens, and former world 100m champion Donovan Bailey, extended their hopes for his speedy recovery.

In the end, England emerged victorious with a 6-3 win, securing the Soccer Aid title for the first time since 2018.
