It will take up to twenty years to break my record - Usain Bolt

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt says he is feeling no pressure in retirement and that his world record will take decades to break.

Usain Bolt is the only sprinter to capture the 100 and 200 meter track titles at three consecutive Olympics, he retired last month after the world championships in London.

The Manchester United holds the world record of 9.58 seconds in the 100 and 19.9 in the 200 - both in Berlin in 2009.

Usain Bolt was speaking through the Associated press during a promotional event on Tuesday in Japan.

"I think [they're] going to last a while, I think our era with Yohan Blake, Justin Gatlin and Asafa Powell and all these guys was the best era of athletes,"
"If it was going to be broken, it would have been broken in this era, so I think I have at least 15 to 20 more years."
Bolt farewell didn't actually go as plan in London, after he surprisingly finish third place in the 100 meter behind Americans Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman.
The Jamaican last race ended in the anguish of an injured hamstring while anchoring Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team.
Usain Bolt a staunch  Manchester United fan never rule out playing football one day as he consider himself to be fit to play soccer.
"Something I've always wanted to do is play football. My team is working on that but we haven't confirmed anything yet!" said Bolt
