NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt walked the red carpet alongside his parents and stars from the world of screen and sport at the world premiere of his documentary 'I Am Bolt' in London on Monday (November 28). The film looks at his record-breaking career and follows the nine-times Olympic gold medallist in his gruelling training and in competition as well as relaxing at home, giving fans a glimpse into the life of the man nicknamed "Lightning Bolt". 'I Am Bolt' includes footage shot at the Beijing World Championships, Rio Olympics and London Olympics, and also has video from Bolt's youth and interviews with family members, friends and coach. Bolt, who became the first person to win three consecutive 100 and 200 metres Olympic golds in Rio de Janeiro in August, and is the world record holder in the two disciplines, can also be seen talking about his nerves and fears ahead of a race. The 30-year-old has said he plans to retire from the sport after the August world championships in London. 'I Am Bolt' is available now on digital download, Blu-Ray and DVD.
