Balotelli in Bolt row

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...”
