Over his ten-year professional career Bolt was the darling of the sport where he entertained and thrilled with scintillating runs and his inimitable antics.“The sport is not just about one person. Nobody is irreplaceable. Track and field survived many civilizations. Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson and now Usain Bolt. Men will all come and go but the sport will always remain,” Lewis told PTI.“We need to do more to build on the sport. We don’t need to follow that trend that we have been in the last eight years, which was just about following one person,” he added.“Our job is to fill the void. In the last 10 years, the sport has not grown as the focus was just on one man. The point is we need to build competition. We now have a unique chance to rebuild and grow our sport. Now we have a chance to make a difference, grow our sport and not just grow yourself.”
1 Roma are eyeing up a move for Sunderland left-back Patrick van Aanholt, according to reports in Italy.The Dutch international has been a standout performer during a difficult season for the Black Cats and the north east club will struggle to keep hold of him should they be relegated to the Championship.According to Tutto Mercato, Roma want to sign on-loan full-back Lucas Digne on a permanent basis from Paris Saint-Germain this summer but will turn their attentions to landing Van Aanholt if that deal falls through.The former Chelsea man signed for Sunderland for £1.5m in 2014 and has emerged as a fans’ favourite at the Stadium of Light.The 25-year-old has made 35 appearances for club and country this season, netting on three occasions. But the defender is keeping his options open and a move to Italy, with the possibility of Champions League football next term, is likely to be enough to persuade Van Aanholt to sign on the dotted line.
