Rio de Janeiro, Aug 3 (IANS) Jamaican sprint icon Usain Bolt has posted a photograph on photo sharing platform Instagram alongside the heavily armed Brazilian security officers.
The 29-year-old had taken some time out from his 2016 Olympic preparations to hang out with members of the Brazilian Navy.
The photo was posted with a “Don’t try test…#BrazilianNavy” giving a strong message that these are not men to be messed with ahead of an Olympics.

The 29-year-old Jamaican is now putting the finishing touches to his preparations ahead of his first event, the 100m heats on August 13.
Bolt is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records. Along with his teammates, he also set the world record in the 4×100 metres relay.
