A pair of Usain Bolt running shoes has been stolen in Croydon leading the six-time Olympic gold medallist to tweet to his 3.3 million followers asking for them to be returned.
The signed orange Puma shoes, which were framed along with a photo of the Jamaican sprinter, are valued in the region of £20,000.
They were taken during a burglary from an industrial estate on Gloucester Road, Croydon between April 26-28.
While police have urged anyone with information to get in touch, Bolt himself has used Twitter to put out a call to the thieves.
“I know u love me, but please why u had to go stealing that signed Usain Bolt spikes. I know you are going to return it. Right?”
Usain Bolt claims he devoured 1,000 Chicken McNuggets a day during the Beijing Olympics.
Bolt, who won three gold medals at both the Beijing and London Games added: “All you had to do was just ask me for one. No need to go stealing the people’s things. Come on now.”
And later on, suggested he would send a new pair of signed running shoes to London.
