Usain Bolt might have finished off the Olympic triple triple at the Rio Olympics a couple of weeks ago – but the fastest man on Earth hasn’t had enough speedy excitement for the moment.
The track legend has been busy swapping the sprinting shoes for two wheels because he’s been out taking his motorcycle test at a school in London. Yep.
Caught getting to grips with a Honda NC750 yesterday, the 30-year-old Jamaican history maker took it steady around the cones on the off-road course but looked pretty much at home on the bike straight away.

He hardly needed full leathers for the sedate trot on the Honda but at least Bolt kept the bright red trainers theme from the Olympics going whilst he was out on the bike. The Shark lid and short gloves were the only concessions to bike kit, a thin zip top and skinny jeans didn’t give way for body armour or textile kit.
So if you’re out and about in London and a middle-of-the-road Honda won’t let you past, give the rider a second look because he might just be one of the most famous people on the planet getting his motorcycle mojo on.
