Tegla Loroupe Greatest Sports Selfie Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt was yesterday named sportsman of the year at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco, but that wasn’t his only achievement on the night. He also went ahead to take what is being referred to as the world’s greatest sporting selfie.

The selfie which recreates Ellen DeGeneres’ famous Oscars selfie features some of the greatest sporting names of all time.

The Jamaican sprint record-holder was flanked by sportswoman of the year Simone Biles, 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, F1 champion Nico Rosberg, Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri and captain Wes Morgan, Paralympic champion Beatrice Vio, and members of the Olympic Refugee Team led by Chef de Mission and Laureus Academy Member Tegla Loroupe, one of Kenya’s and the world’s greatest ever distance runners.

Also in the picture are Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco.
