Debasis Sen, Colombo: Indian captain Virat Kohli on Sunday complimented Usain Bolt by saying that the records set by the Jamaican will be tough to break. According to Kohli, “He (Bolt) deserves it because there is no one greater than him and it was his last race. I also wished him because we both are Puma athletes. We have not seen a career like that in athletics and I don’t think that, going forward, these records will be broken in a hurry.”

Bolt did not have the same glory on his final race as he finished third. American Justin Gatlin, who played second fiddle to the Jamaican all throughout his career got the better of him. The American was humble enough to acknowledge Bolt’s contribution, setting the tracks on fire.

The Indian captain too did something similar during the second Test when he applauded the Sri Lankan centurions, Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne.

“On the field, I always try to create as difficult a situation as possible so that he (the opponent) gets out. But at the same time, if he achieves something, then you must also appreciate it. The opposition will always test you, either with their plans or with their talk. But when people do well…you understand how much strength and hard work has gone into it. So you must appreciate that, it is very necessary,” said Kohli.
