We pictured Usain Bolt wolfing down salmon and washing it down with some raw eggs.

But the training diet of the world’s fastest man is pretty much the exact same as the rest of the population.

Somehow, Bolt regularly manages to run 100m in under 10 seconds with the same diet as a 60-year-old school teacher.

The reigning Olympic and World champion revealed his daily intake to GQ magazine and it’s surprising how very dull it is, although it kind of makes sense.

Egg sandwich

Pasta and corned beef

Throughout the day
Mango, pineapple, apples

Roasted chicken, Jamaican dumplings

I had this exact same bit of grub last week and I broke f**k all records.
