What are you most look­ing for­ward to about Lon­don 2012? En­ter­tain­ing all the Ja­maican peo­ple in Lon­don. I will have a lot of sup­port for sure so I hope to make ev­ery­one re­ally happy and do some­thing spe­cial. If you could live in any build­ing in Lon­don which would it be? Maybe in a mall, like on Ox­ford Street. It would be easy to go shop­ping and I would have food all around me. If I wanted to go to a movie, I could just crawl out of bed, grab some food and clothes on the way and catch the movie. Won­der­ful. What do you think of the Olympic Sta­dium? It looks good. I have only seen the out­side but I’m look­ing for­ward to check­ing out the inside.

The fastest man in the world wants to open a bar in the cap­i­tal and thinks

Lon­don­ers work too hard

Who’s your hero? Michael John­son. He was al­ways so quick so he was my hero. And [Ja­maican sprinter] Don­ald Quar­rie is an­other guy I have a lot of re­spect for. Which is your favourite shop­ping street? I used to go shop­ping in Cen­tral Lon­don but I can’t now be­cause I get too much at­ten­tion from peo­ple. Ev­ery­body wants to know me. Which is your favourite bar? I can’t re­mem­ber the name of it but a few years ago I went to a club in Lon­don and I met [Chelsea foot­baller] Di­dier Drogba (above left). He was good fun and he knew me, so that was cool. I have a bar called Tracks & Records in Ja­maica. It’s good, peo­ple com­pli­ment me on it
