Manchester United’s in-house television channel received a shock when Usain Bolt called up to discuss Saturday’s 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in the Premier League. In the post-match phone-in, MUTV presenter Mandy Henry introduced the next caller as a “Usain from Jamaica” but then added: “It’s not Usain Bolt is it?”. The nine-time Olympic champion had to confirm his identity, then later Tweeted to back up his on-air assertion.
They came through and pushed on and persevered, the Manchester United way. It was a great match, I am very happy about this.
