(BBC) Jamaica’s eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt will be honoured with the Lifetime Achievement award at BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

Bolt, 36, is the fastest sprinter in history and retired in August 2017 as a 19-time global champion.

He was crowned Olympic 100m and 200m champion at three successive Games – Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.

“I’m living proof that if you work hard, you can get anything you want,” Bolt told BBC Sport.

“One thing my dad taught me was if you want something, work hard for it. He showed me by working hard to provide for me, my mum and my sister, so when he told me, I believed it.

“Just be focused and work towards it.”
