Usain Bolt premieres 'I Am Bolt' (photos)

Usain Bolt may be a die hard Manchester United fan and claim he could still play for the Red Devils one day, but it was the Gunners who turned out in force to celebrate the opening of the star sprinter’s film, I Am Bolt.
A who’s who of Arsenal, including Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud, hit the red carpet for the London premiere of the documentary that follows the nine-time Olympic gold medallist’s in his daily life.

Current stars Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal also attended at Leicester Square's Odeon along with former Gunners ace Cesc Fabregas, now at Chelsea, and Callum Chambers, on loan at Middlesbrough.

It wasn’t a closed shop for those with Gunners connections though, with Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling making the trip to London and Liverpool legend Jamie Rednapp suiting up.

Bolt says the film will show the hard work that goes into making being the world greatest ever runner look easy.

"Most people's concept of me is that 'Oh Usain, it's easy for Usain, there's no stress' ... but it's not," Bolt told a news conference in London on Monday ahead of the film's world premiere in the British capital.

"I wanted to make people see what I went through to get to where I'm at today.”

Big names in athletics also made an appearance, including Olympic and world champion middle distance runner Mo Farah and former world triple jump record holder Jonathan Edwards.

Farah was joined by boxers David Haye and Joe Fournier.
