A couple, who were enjoying their wedding reception at the five star Lowry Hotel in Manchester were surprised to be joined by an unexpected hotel guest. While posing for pictures in the lobby they were interrupted by triple gold medalist – Usain Bolt who joined the lucky couple and a handful of guests in some memorable wedding snaps. And as one of the most recognizable and famous men on the planet, this happy couple are sure to place these unexpected photos near the front of their album
Bolt, earlier this month, secured three gold medals at the London Olympics in 100m, 200m and the 4 x100m relay, was happy to pose for shots with the newly weds and sign autographs as he left the hotel. Bolt was staying in Manchester during a trip to the city which included a meeting with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. The world’s fastest man was also the guest of honour at the football team’s Old Trafford stadium for their Premier League victory over Fulham, later on in the day.
Bolt, a Manchester United fan, urged supporters to persuade the club to sign him, as he walked around the pitch with his haul of gold medals around his neck. Speaking after the game, the charismatic Jamaican even suggested he had some influence over the result saying: ‘I shook their hands before they went on the field so I guess I was a good luck charm.’
