Mario Balotelli hit back at Usain Bolt after the sprinter said “to be honest I don’t like him very much.”
Bolt is in Rome for a race meeting and spoke to TG1 about Italian sportsmen, specifically Super Mario.
“Balotelli is a great football player, although perhaps a little too aggressive for my tastes,” said Bolt.
“He never misses a penalty. I’ve met him a couple of times and to be honest I don’t like him very much.”
Balotelli caught wind of the interview while on international duty and wrote directly to Bolt via Twitter.
“@usainbolt get to no people before to judge them! Isnt very kind what u said about me...”
