• Usain Bolt says he considered coming out of retirement

Usain Bolt, who won 8 Olympic gold medals and holds the 100m and 200m World records ended his brilliant track and field career on a disappointing note as he was beaten into the 3rd place in the 100m final and pulled up with a hamstring injury in the last 50 meters of the 4x100m at the 2017 world championships.

Since then Bolt thought once in while coming out of retirement.

"I talked to my track coach,” Bolt told CNN Sport’s Coy Wire. “And he was like, ‘No, you’re not doing it. People that retire and come back — it doesn’t always work out.’

I don’t miss this.'”
