Usain Bolt sneakers stolen in car break-in

Usain Bolt sneakers stolen in car break-in

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt-signed sneakers have been stolen from a car in southern Hertfordshire, England. Their owner had bought the trainers at a charity auction raising money for Sport for Freedom.

The sneakers, which sold for "a significant amount of money" at the auction, were framed with a certificate of authenticity and a picture of Usain Bolt. The entire framed set was taken when thieves broke into grey BMW in St Albans area in southern Hertfordshire on 21 December between midnight and 10 a.m.

Local police are now appealing for witnesses.

Back in 2014, a pair of the Jamaican sprint legend's signed sneakers were also stolen in London.
