Usain Bolt to bring Jamaican restaurant chain to UK

The superstar runner already has one location for his Tracks and Records restaurant in Kingston and plans another 15 eateries in the UK.

Superstar track runner Usain Bolt is to bring a 'fast' food chain to the UK, thanks to a deal with SME Group, following a successful opening in Kingston, Jamaica in 2011.

The chain, called Tracks & Records, serves traditional Jamaican food including jerk pork, janga soup and pan chicken as well as the athlete’s own creation “burgers a la Usain”.

“London has always been a special place for me [and this] is giving us the opportunity to share our vision and our culture with you all,” said the now-retired runner.

The runner of Jamaican heritage is regarded worldwide as one of the greatest track runners of all time, holding eight Olympic medals.
