“This was special. There are no words,” Bolt said after the race, according to Jamaican publication The Gleaner.
“I could not have done this without my parents, my friends, my best friend NJ, I want to thank Jamaica, I never expected this. It’s big to see everybody turn out, it shows that they appreciated what I did and it was an honor for me.”
