Usain Bolt reportedly lost millions from his investment accounts

Jamaican authorities have launched an investigation after millions of dollars allegedly disappeared from an account belonging to eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt.

Bolt‘s manager, Nugent Walker, told The Gleaner newspaper that the Financial Investigations Division and the Financial Services Commission of Jamaica are investigating the case at investment firm Stocks and Securities Limited (SSL).

It is also understood that SSL brought the case to the attention of the police.

Walker said Bolt first noticed certain discrepancies with his accounts at SSL on Wednesday.

“All appropriate steps have been taken to get to the bottom of this,” Walker said, adding that due to the ongoing investigation he could not disclose the sums involved.

“Usain has been with this entity for more than 10 years…. His entire portfolio is being reviewed,” Walker said.

The Jamaican, who retired in 2017, earned nearly 33 million dollars in sponsorship, prize money and appearance fees in 2016 alone, making him easily the highest-earning athlete in the world.
