Usain Bolt escapes crowd at Heathrow Airport Sunglass Hut

Usain Bolt


Usain Bolt showed everyone a glimpse of what it’s like to be the world’s fastest man this week.

Before Bolt came from behind to win a 100-meter race in Zurich (video here), he faced an even more daunting field at Heathrow Airport.

Bolt took the photo from one of four Sunglass Hut locations inside the London airport -- the Terminal 5 hut to be exact. An employee at the store confirmed Bolt’s presence.

Later, a public relations director in the U.S. associated with Sunglass Hut confirmed via e-mail a report from The Sun that Bolt purchased five pairs of sunglasses at the store -- including Ray-Ban, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Polo.

The total price for the sunglasses, £2,580 or $4,000, reported by the newspaper could not be confirmed.
