Olympic hero Usain Bolt meets fans as he visits second restaurant in Wigan borough

Olympic legend Usain Bolt brought star appeal to a Wigan borough restaurant just weeks after it opened.

The retired Jamaican sprinter visited Rendezvous restaurant and bar, at Astley Point, on Sunday with former Bolton Wanderers player Ricardo Gardner.

The venue opened earlier this month and serves “modern bistro English cuisine with an added twist of classic sushi options”.
