Last week, the king of sprinting fell to the track during his final race at the World Athletics Championships.
On Twitter, Bolt explained the extent of his injury.
He said: “Sadly I have a tear of the proximal myotendineous junction of biceps femoris in my left hamstring with partial retraction. Three months rehab.
“I don’t usually release my medical report to the public but sadly I have sat and listened to people questioning if I was really injured.
“I have never been one to cheat my fans in any way and my entire desire at the Championships was [to] run one last time for my fans.
“Thanks for the continued support my fans and I rest, heal and move onto the next chapter of my life.”
You’re amazing, Usain, and we wish you a speedy recovery and incredible next chapter of your life.
