WATCH: Usain Bolt directs traffic in Trinidad & Tobago

Fans of the World's fastest man alive can often count on a video or snippet of him travelling the world, and at the most random times.

However, loyalists know February/March is dedicated to Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago.

Bolt is so much of a soca fan that he’s even released his own tune Ultimate Rejects Remix.

And, on Friday night, after a fête in T & T, Bolt was recorded conducting traffic – something few Twitter users declared “a typical Jamaican thing”.



The compelling video is clickbait on social media and has garnered much attention from the voice behind the cam asking “Why is Bolt directing traffic?...Why is he in Trinidad directing traffic?”

It's also funny to note Bolt's T-shirt that read "Locals Only". And, at another point in the video, a woman is heard gushing as she realises it is, in fact, Usain Bolt.
