'The Manchester United way!' - Usain Bolt rings club to congratulate them on win

Millions of Manchester United fans were celebrating on Saturday as they finished 2016 with a euphoric, late victory over Middlesbrough - and Usain Bolt was among them!

The day seemed to be going against them as Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goal was ruled out for a high foot and they had a penalty appeal waved away.

When Grant Leadbitter put Boro ahead midway through the second half, it seemed like Jose Mourinho's men were going to taste defeat at Old Trafford.

But late strikes from Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba secured a 2-1 victory - and Olympic legend Bolt gave the MUTV channel a call to congratulate the squad!

If there was any doubt it had been Bolt who called the studio, he cleared the air completely with a tweet confirming he dialled in from Jamaica on New Year's Eve.

Sprint king Bolt - a 100m and 200m Olympic and world champion multiple times - has previously hinted he'd love to play for the Red Devils. Maybe this latest stunt will finally get his foot in the door!
