Usain Bolt frequently hashtags his photos with “country yute” and we’re beginning to understand why the reminder is needed.
Just by looking on, it may be easy for some to forget that the superstar was once just a humble athlete from Sherwood Content, Trelawny in Jamaica. Now, he’s one of the most recognisable faces in the world.

In case that wasn’t motivation enough for you to work hard on securing your own bag, Bolt shared a photo of himself in front the luxury plane today. The caption?
