I managed to get myself an invitation to the IAMBOLT Première in London. I confess I have not been invited to a great number of Premières in my life! (Just less than 1, in fact). My justification for asked for an invitation was that I had been in the stadium at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympics to see Usain Bolt win all three of his Olympic trebles - not to mention seeing him in 4 World Championships and a few Diamond Leagues.
It was a fun event to attend with the man himself speaking from the stage to introduce the evening. I was accompanied by the web editor of Athletics Weekly, who proved excellent company but just as poor as I was at celebrity spotting. I did see Jonathan Edwards, Mo Farah and Chelsea footballer, Cesc Fabergas. I am told that former Spice Girl, Geri Horner, Salina Hayek, Tallia Storm, Liam Payne and Sean Paul were among those representing music and Shown Biz.
