Sprint phenomenon and three time gold medal winner Usian Bolt had to apologise to the Jamaican people after he was quoted in German newspaper Bild explaining that 'when you're a child in Jamaica you learn how to roll a joint.' Oops.
The quote, which while being very bad (and drugs are bad mmkay?), is really rather amusing, but Jamaica as a whole didn't see it that way, oh no. They didn't see it that way at all.
'I want to apologise to the Jamaican people if at any time it may have come across that all young people roll a joint,' Bolt said, trying to quell the po-faced ruckus. 'I would also like to urge the upcoming stars to stay away from any kind of drugs, as it is not of any value to them or the sport you participate in.'
