Usain Bolt shows off his medals during Hublot event in Mexico 

Usain Bolt has never been one to shy away from the limelight, and the Olympic legend has been in Mexico this week showing off his career honours in front of fans at a luxury event.

Bolt made the trip over to North America to attend a event put on by luxury watchmakers Hublot, of which he is one of several high profile ambassadors.

The sprinting star has been keeping busy after hanging up his spikes for good at the World Athletic Championships in London earlier this year, jetting across the globe on various promotional events.

Bolt arrived in Mexico suited and booted for the Hublot event, looking sharp in an all black blazer and shirt combination.

Entertaining the masses, Bolt showed off his eight Olympic medals, earned over the three games in which he dazzled the world of sport.

Fans of the Jamaican star will know Bolt’s collection originally boasted nine, yet Nesta Carter’s testing positive for banned substances saw the superstar stripped of his relay 4x100m gold earned in Beijing.

Making the most of his visit in Mexico, Bolt took to Instagram to share a photo of himself holding up a rather special belt.

The iconic star had managed to get his hands on the WBC world champion belt.

Bolt could be seen holding up the green and golden belt over his shoulder, with a stern pose and clenched fist.

‘When in Mexico is only right,’ Bolt later captioned the snap.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Bolt, who was recently confirmed to be swapping the running track for, quite unbelievably, the Formula One track.

The Jamaican will be the official starter for the United States Grand Prix and will give the signal to Lewis Hamilton and Co to start their formation lap ahead of Sunday’s race in Austin.

Hamilton, who could clinch his fourth world championship this weekend, is also set to drive Bolt round the 3.4-mile Circuit of the Americas track in a Mercedes-AMG road car two hours before the start of the grand prix.
