After a successful career on the track, Usain Bolt continues to make headlines.
The eight-time Olympic gold medallist was recognised by Brunel University in London, and awarded an honorary doctorate on Tuesday.
The sprinter trained at the University several times throughout his career, most notably ahead of the London 2012 Olympics where he won three gold medals.
Bolt accepted the award via video from and thanked the University for the honour.
He also acknowledged their assistance in helping him to become the fastest man in the world.
This is Bolt’s third Honorary Doctorate.
He had received an honorary Doctor of Laws from The University of the West Indies, Mona in 2011 and another from the Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 2010.
Among his long list of accolades, Bolt also holds the title of Order of Jamaica OJ, a national honour which he received in 2009.
